The RTS system seems to run in reverse - if I switch the wires on the motor then the gear won't engage and bounces around. If I leave it the other way, the gear engages and will spin the motor but the prop appears to run the wrong way. Does it truly run in reverse?

I am not a big fan of the RTS - or at least the way it is set up to engage it by hitting reverse. I race SC trucks and have a habit of hitting reverse to brake. I know boats done have brakes but it is a habit that is hard to break!
