Default Tail rotor ...switch sides

I been thinking about doing a mod to the tail on my uflys...i noticed its one of the only few heli that has the tail rotor on the left side....i plan on getting a couple of the rudder linkages and cutting off the linkage arm on 1 of them and switching it to the other side on the other one using a couple of small screws and epoxy ....i did some checking and that is the only thing that needs to be done in order to swap the tail rotor to the right side,other then flipping around the tail rotor blades... i guess i could just run the rudder linkage on top of the tail boom but it will get hammered if it gets a strike from the main blades and might strip the servo......im just curious as to how it will affect the heli cause all other helis has the tail rotor on the right side and there has to be a reason for it...so maybe its a better set up some how...

anybody have any idea on why its the only heli with the tail rotors on the left side and not on the right like all others are?

been doing some more thinking on this and it might not work because there is no way to reverse the gyro in the rx....so unless i use a external gyro i think im at a lose if i try to switch the tail rotor to the right side....anybody have any input on this as to if it will reverse the gyro ? i know i can reverse the rudder servo in the tx but it wont help unless i can reverse the gyro , unless i am thinking on the wrong path here....
