The only problem with your method is that you would lose the freewheeling ability with power reduction, (or complete loss).

I had already thought of a larger freewheel drive gear, but have not found one that will fit within the spacing and allow for fitting the tail drive assembly with adequate tail belt tension. One really radical idea was to remove the freewheel gear and tail drive completely and driving the tail belt directly from a secondary smaller brushless with an ESC in governor mode. On top of that I was trying to decide how to come up with a tail pitch arm to allow for a stock tail pitch mech and have the rotor on the LH side for a more scale appearance. This would require a mirror of the stock pitch bellcrank.

Anyway, a bit off the original thread topic.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

It would work but power usage would be a drawback.
