Re: Electric Q1

G'day Graham,

Turning the prop backwards doesn't seem to be very effective at producing much reverse thrust, at least at low speeds (I've only tested up to about 20 mph).  I'm sure it's more drag than a stopped or idling prop but it doesn't augment the  plans soapbox-derby brakes as much as I'd like.  On the other hand, it's highly effective at making a lot of noise.  I'll see if it's any better at higher speeds. 

Cheers, Henry
