Default Different Prop for Pusher?

I am going to get a pusher jet and I was wondering if you use a different prop than for a normal electric plane?

I know you reverse the motor but what if anything do you do different with the prop!!??

Thanks.

Same old same old. Put the numbers to the front just like in tractor configuration, the prop is still pulling the same direction. Look at the contour of the prop to make sure you have it turning correctly and you're good to go.

Reason for a pusher prop is cause it is HARD to change direction on a Glo motor.. Electrik you just change wires.. Brushless run just as good one way as the other.. Brushed you use to have to change timing..

Thanks guys. so the motor faces the opposite direction and the prop faces the same direction. Got it......I knew that but like to have some affirmation!

Yup that is correct. Also if you want counter rotating props, you would need a pusher.

OK, that has me wondering, a lot of beginner planes, like the EZ* and many of PZ's birds are pushers and brushless. Are these moters especially made for pusher props? Or are the props special (they're made to rotate "backwards", maybe?)
