Reversing the rotation of all of your propellers (known as 'props out') is something you commonly do on larger quads to eliminate debris bring flung into your FPV camera and to push obstacles like branches clear. Obviously these don't apply when the props are gaurded like in a Mobula 7 but there is also a hypothesis out there that it can improve flight characteristics such as note on KababFPV's video here. Some of the beta fpv guys also believe it helps with yaw washout but the evidence appears inconclusive. Typically to do this correctly you need to
This is the fourth article in my series of HappyModel Mobula7 upgrades, many of which can be used for the Trashcan too. Also to come are:
Below are the steps to take when changing to props out. I'd recommend doing this when switching frames. I did it when I upgraded to the v3/trashcan frame as I wrote about here. Use the little philips screwdriver that came with your quadcopter. Click images to embiggen.
That's it - easy eh? If the quad flips out when you throttle up, check the physical rotation is the same as shown in the betaflight image for prop rotation above.
