Default tower pro motor direction of spin

Hey gang, question on this motor;

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=4853

It didn't come with a manual. Upon testing it I found it spun counter clockwise. Is this one meant to be mounted as a pusher? If so, is there a way I can reverse the direction it spins?

Thanks

Just change any 2 wires from the ESC to the motor and it will change the prop direction.

Make sure you do this with the prop off I always forget to mention this. Anytime you work on a motor do this. Hate to be the cause of some sliced fingers.

Thanks for the reminder. Those props are sharp. Ever watch a youtube video with someone not minding the prop? Gives me the willies...
