Trying to decide if this “issue” is machine error, or designed properly ?

Only found 1 internet comment that stated “motor not level” but I’m Leary about “leveling” if it’s proper quad design.



Hopefully my stick figure makes sense, the front left and back right “tilt” the motors in ~ 1+mm, the other two are flat level



Thanks for the help

They are designed to have a tilt to the motors. It is hard for me to tell, but they all look to have a little tilt. I thought someone said it was to help eliminate getting into it's own prop wash in coming down..

That's to stop the "vortex effect" that would otherwise crash it.

It is by design. There are threads here on it if you can find them by search.
