Hi guys
I am after some guidance about the angle you should set the rear yaw motor.
I have read conflicting info. From 10 degrees to 30 and not sure where to start.

It will be about 10 deg. It depends on how much drag your particular props have, and if you have them all going CCW, or if you mix CW and CCW. The controller will take care of that for you. All you may have ot do is trim a little on the rudder input to get it to stay still. If your controller has integral gain in its control algorithm, then trimming may not be necessary.
