Hi, just swap around any 2 of the 3 wires that go from your motor to the ESC. Alternatively, you may be able to do this via your ESC`s programming mode.

And make sure you mount the prop exactly as you would on the front of the plane [front convex faces of blades facing forward] - usually letters are stamped on the front of the blades... so those need to face forward.

And NEVER EVER swap the batterywires to reverse rotation, will fry your controller (and all electronics in general).
