Spinning Direction - Spark Ignition Engine

Not sure if I'm dreaming or not so need some advice.

I have a model helicopter project in mind. It will be powered by the new OS GT15HZ gas engine when it becomes available:

For my application, I really want to run this engine "backwards" i.e. have the crank turning clockwise when viewed from the front rather than the conventional anti-clockwise direction.

Is it just a matter of repositioning the timing magnet to the equivalent location before TDC and spinning the engine clockwise to start?

Any lessons someone can help me learn cheaply?

Good advice appreciated.
