No need to feel ashamed. Electrics are good for that quick back-yard flight when you can't make it to the flying field and the weather is too good to pass up. We all do it.

Reversing an Enya VT-240

I am building a Ziroli DC-3 which I will power with two Enya VT-240's. Is there a practical way to reverse one of the VT-240's so that I can have counter-rotating props?
