For now, this is just a proof of concept of how couter rotating propellers can be driven. There are no complete mechanics to print yet. I am working on it.

Movement goes in at the red axle on the right, and through the hollow green axle. The Movement is reversed by the blue gears and goes out through the green axle.

See: https://youtu.be/dCCo4gIuark

The idea of counter rotating propellers is to cancel out the torque of only one propeller. Maybe an interesting enhancement for the Toypedo (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:932180) or other things like that?
