Default How do I achieve desired airflow

On my Electric rotowing because of it's rotation my motrs and props must turn counter clockwise to pull air in from wingtips across the larger surface area.Do I put pusher props up front or get reverse props if they make them?

Well thats cool but mine is like a lightweight oversized propeller that is Rotated from the wingtips.I'm not sure what normal rotation is but, front view my props have to turn clockwise.Not pusher but, possibly use pusher props on front mounted motor.Then again I don't know what standard rotation is?I want to turn the air inward for better performance!
