Changing a Propeller

By Rusty and Elisa

Introduction

The T100 and T200 Thrusters comes with two propellers each, one clockwise and one counter-clockwise turning. This allows the torque from two thrusters to be cancelled if they are operated along the same axis with opposite propellers.

Changing the propeller is easy and should only take a minute!
