Glad to hear someone else thinking of the ability to reverse thrust
I haven't built my x8 wing yet, but these wings float forever when trying to land, I mentioned the same idea of using a car esc to reverse thrust, just to be used briefly to be able to wash off airspeed to land shorter. I was hoping I might be able to somehow mix in a switch to enable throttle to go into reverse... I don't know if I'll be brave enough to try it, going to have to substantially strengthen the motor mount if I ever do try it
Anyone heard this attempted?
