Default OFF TOPIC: Scott Foster, inverted prop hang?

Has anyone followed the link, and watched the 1st video from the link at the top of the page? At the end he hangs it on the prop upside down, or tail pointing up???? How is this done? Does he reverse the prop?? Even if he did, a reg prop spinning backwards will not produce much, if any, thrust at all.

Hi,
Guy at the club I fly with (Bryce) tried to perfect this a year or so ago using a heli tail rotor set up on the nose of a home brew fan fold foam foamy! He may have never quite sorted it out, but I had to give him credit for thinking outside the box
