    You obviously just need a second one with a counter rotating prop!

    Haha... That sounds like a neat idea but engineering wise its fairly complicated

    Rotate the handle so the the torque of the running prop brings the weight of the offset battery to 3 or 9 o'clock (depending on direction) and the handle to 12 o'clock

    No need to have the handle perfectly at 12 o'clock when it's not running.

    Just thinking out loud. What about making the support arms for the kort into angled fins to counteract the torque? Or, fitting trim tabs to the kort supports might work.

    Tried the trim tab idea but I didn't make them strong enough and they came off. Could always try again.

    I went for two angled fins inside the Kort and I can confirm that it's easy and it works very good.
