Either the pictures return a false perspective or someone is well confused with propeller orientation.

a propeller has a concave side and a convex side. The convex side should alway point towards the front of the plane . I would not trust on the writing although the writing is generally on the convex side.

Now... here we are trying to help each other and I think some smart comments are uncalled for.

All of us write in here in good faith. This is a genuine case and believe it or not, this is a very common mistake .
A propeller mounted backwards will be so inefficient that the plane will feel underpowered despite the motor burning the right amount of power.
I do, I learn many things from other guys right here, by reading and watching photos, I had never this chance to have a single hour class or someone to teach me about RC except you people right here.
I learn many things from Crist Rigotti specially, he always share his experience generously.
I apologizes if said or show something wrong.
I really confused for a moment cause I trust his experience and trust what I saw, thats why took those photo to be sure about it and learn if I was wrong.
I do, I respect all you guys that share your knowledge and experience here.
