I am trying to build a setup that includes two propellers that can pitch up and down. I am debating whether I should use two motor to power each propeller and the other two to act as servos for each of the "motor-propeller" set up, or the power of the motor is strong enough that I can use one motor/move hub to drive both propellers and the other motor can be used as a servo. Could you tell me the specs of these thing so I can decide which one to buy or order? Thanks
