I have mine facing backwards on my Trex 700. I like the look. Lukas Riva has his backwards too, does that mean we built our helis wrong?
Lukas Riva also runs his collective stick backwards. He can have all that nonsense...

Peace Through Superior Firepower!!!

I don't think anyone is "upset".

I tested mine w/ skids facing fwd, and then facing backwards. I clocked a higher speed facing backward. Therefore, that's how they stay.
How much faster? Does it slow down your backwards flight speed since the struts are now forward?
Next I'm going to test with one fwd/ one backward, as I've heard this improves the climb rate.
Will this negate any gain in forward speed since one is backwards? How about when flying backwards? Does it hinder your descent as it is opposite of the climb, unless gravity helps? Or when doing an inverted climb?

i have mine backwards on my rappys, because i can. i personally could care less what anyone does with their skids. not among my many concerns. if everyone did things the same in this hobby, things would get pretty boring. i love the mentality that if you don't do it like i do it you're wrong.

fly it like you stole it

Like the time I saw a guy with his paddles on backwards.

That begs the question, did you do it because you can?
