One Question !

Since the motor is behind doesn't it need a pusher Prop ?

Are those that you recommend the same ?

You just reverse the prop on the motor spindle.

Any prop can be a pusher prop. The orientation of a pusher prop should be the same as a puller prop. The front of the prop faces towards the direction of flight. In 99.99% of cases the lettering on the prop is on the front of the prop. Also, in most cases, the rear of the prop is shinier than the front is.

You are better off just flipping a regular prop around. I guess I will do a quick build thread on my mini-swift next week. I already have a well used Swift 2. I got the mini swift for out front flying. Here is my latest Swift2 video.

Ignore the "backwards" discussion. That information is useless unless we know what direction your motor is wired up.

Another trick:

* most * prop manufacturers will have the "words" or "number" on the prop cut through the wind 1st when the prop is spinning in the right direction. So when it's installed and you spin up the motor safely the "words/number" on the prop blade should lead side of the blade that has no words when installed properyl. When in doubt, this little "trivia" information has saved me more times than not. Good luck.
