Reversing brushless motor?


Has anyone ever reversed an Astroflight B/L 020? I want to add a gearbox to this motor.I know that to reverse rotation on a sensorless motor requires that you simply swap any two wires to the motor.Not sure if the sensor wires have to be reversed? Also,does the motors timing need to be adjusted?

As far as I know it has to have its endbell rotated and retiming is neccesary. Hallsensors stays untouched.

thanks haldor.I'm going to send the motor to Astro Bob for reversal. Price is very reasonable, but I have heard rumors of long turnaround time. (busy guy I'd bet)
