on any of my twins I have ever run, I run them turing at each other (inwards).

That is just me.

Am sure others will chime in.

In my test runs I have found that turning inwards gives you better top end speed and turning outwards gives you better turning ability. The long slender cats have a tendency to catch the outer sponse on a turn and flip if going to fast. If you flip the props outward and change the rotation of the motors outward, it will handle better on turns although you still have to let up on the throttle a little, just not as much.

I've found the opposite, running a 37 cat inwards is much better in corning and outwards gives better topend.. my2cents

Love to know the real truth.... Chime in now guru's... cheers
