drone propeller install and how to install your drone propellers correctly

some general text / info:
Props are designed to produce maximum thrust when turning in only a single direction. Quadcopters are equipped with two sets of two different props: one set of “clockwise” (CW) props which rotate like a clock, and another set of “counter-clockwise” (CCW) props. Normally when you buy props for quadcopters, you receive a full set of 2 CW and 2 CCW props.

You can determine the direction of a prop in one of several ways. Most props have labels on them that look something like “5045” and “5045R”. When labeled like so, the “R” stands for CCW while the lack of an R means the prop is a CW prop.

The better way to determine the intended direction of a prop is to find its leading edge. The leading edge of a propeller blade is the side of the blade that is raised above the other side with a slight concave curve underneath it. All props have this, whether or not they are labeled, so learning to recognize it pays off.
