Default prop spinning the wrong way!

So I just got myself a great looking Dynam C-47 But the props are turning the wrong way. I Built it to spec and the props are facing the right way... So what did I do wrong??

If you have separate esc's for each motor, try switching two wires. Usually the center wire can remain. You might have yellow, black and red wires...sometimes the factory on the other side of the world get them backwards. Seen it many times.

If they are brushless, you can actually swap any two. Brushed motors swap the red/black only. If you have a red/black/yellow Or black/red/(any other color wires), sure, swap the red/black.

Electricity... It's not just for light bulbs anymore.
