I usually just mount them flat. But if memory serves, behind the CG you mount it "up" and in front of the CG you mount it with down.

It will still provide down thrust, but pushing instead of pulling.
When I built my f22 pusher I had the motor axle parallel to the foam board. I found that it flew fine without any up or down thrust. Just neutral.
