Guys, normal R/C props spin clockwise (when you look at them from the back), right? Just installed a 7x5 ( vs. 7x4) on my PopWing and it's CCW and not CW... interesting.
You just have a reverse-rotation prop. A normal prop, when seen from behind, will indeed spin clockwise. A reverse-rotation (or "reverse-pitch") prop will spin CCW.

I'm guessing you bought the prop because it was labeled as a "pusher prop", and you thought you needed one of those because the PopWing is a pusher plane, right?
