Default Help with My Blade CX-2

Hi,

I am replacing both motors in my E-flite Blade CX-2 and got the left and right motors mixed up.

Could anyone give me a rule for which is which?

A rule like "The motor with the gear closer to the motor body is the left/right motor" would be all I need.

It was a dumb rookie mistake. I can't believe I did it.

I could put the heli back together and if I guessed wrong correct it, but I'd prefer to reassemble only once.

Thanks.

the motor with the gear closer to it is on the left as you look at it from the top or bottom

One way to remember (I just replaced mine too) is first to remember that the connectors on the 4-in-1 are in the order of the rotors, i.e. the top connector is for the top rotor and the bottom connector is for the bottom rotor. Add to that the fact that the leads on the motors are the same length, and you'll find that if you try to plug the right motor onto the lower connector, it won't reach, which means that the right motor must drive the upper rotor, so it has to be the one with the gear farther from the inner workings. It's kind of a twisted bit of deductive reasoning, but it works.

which side you put it on shouldn't matter to be honest.
also, when plugging them in, just make sure each blade spins properly when moving the trim on the remote.
