I would have thought the best way to handle the reversed prop would be to use the same motor turned backwards (output gear facing the rear), with the large prop shaft gear on the rear end of the prop shaft and the prop on the front. Propshaft and gearbox would be different, but motor and gears could be exactly the same. Gearbox would be longer to avoid a really long unsupported section of propshaft.

Unless there's really no issue with running one of these motors backwards.

I assume the one propshaft has reverse threads.
