Default Pusher motor question

I have an OS 40 LA, 10x4 prop, on a BUHOR frame and a Rogallo (kite) canopy. I would like to modify it and make it a pusher. Can an OS 40 LA be run backwards so I can use the same prop? Or should I just buy a pusher prop?

Default RE: Pusher motor question

If the front housing is not removable the engine cannot easily be run backwards. Pusher props are not generally available at the Hobby Shop. However APC pusher props are made in 10 x 6, 10 x 7, and 10 x 8. You might make sure pusher props can be found in sizes you are planning to run.

Thanks Bill
I will check out the pusher props before I do the build.
