X8 motor configuration, which motor goes were?

Hi all! I am stripping a flat Octocopter and rebuilding it as an X8 configuration. I have a discontinued flightcontroller from proflyer.eu, that supports Up to 8 motors. My problem is to know where M1-M8 should be? Are all multiwii X8 set up the same way when it comes to what motor is top,front,righ...

All motors just stops for a moment..

I found the cause, and it was the transmitter.. Ovserving the "monitor" of values, the throttle would jump to low value each time I moved the stick up..
DX6i transmitter.
I managed to solve it by resetting the model..
Scary!
