Help! FT motors, setting up as CW...any issues

#1
I have a ton of CW props, and wanted to know if the thrust angle setup is "0" "0" (FT Alpha), are the any problems in using the CW props?
I bought the cheap sets of 1 CS and 1 CCW 6" props. (just swapping the motor to ESC wires)

They'll be fine, just make sure your prop nut is secure. Running CW it will naturally want to loosen instead of tighten.

You should know, if you are flying a pusher plane (like the arrow), then cw props are actually better. Because of their rotation the nut actually screws itself on using the motor torque.
