Nice! Clearly the person editing the video doesn't understand what the prop being on backwards really means though.

If the prop is on "backwards" it will still blow air the same way (towards the back of the aircraft) because now it is rotating the opposite way.
I wonder how he could reverse near the end of the video. Some of this junk has user-adjustable pitch props. Perhaps the pitch was too flat or loose.

I'm pretty sure the reverse at the end was Fred Flintstone style..

Not quite what I was looking for, but still fits the moment nicely.. everyone knows what I mean anyway:

Perhaps you can make a Rotax 5xx or whatever two-stroke junk he was using to power that thing run in reverse... just like a snowmobile engine... :wink:

Then... if he did put the prop on backwards... it would go in reverse even faster!
