    what is a scuer

    I didn't understand exactly what you did here, Can you explain it a bit better for me?

    Oh ok thanks for the tip

    The hook is only a tool it is used to stretch the rubber band through the tube

    In that position, the propeller works pushing, not pulling. If it is what you want, it is well.

    You can do work it turning at opposite direction, but in that case the turbulence will be very high.

    That propeller is reversed. The hook must go in the opposite direction.
