"Hey Paul! don't sweat the old post. Yes I think that's been done' but assuming you have a square frame I don't think its worth it. Plus the props up above will cause more turbulent flow over the props underneath - causing reduced efficiency, more…"
"James that's decent but you would have to consider the intertia of the PVC rods and that the distance ahead of the front axle would tend to make them wobble quite a lot at high speed. possibly causing triggering accidentally.
