48" is a great size in a 2-part wing... I've built 2 FPV drones that size and both are small enough to take places yet big enough that wind doesn't get 'em.

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?

Ummm yeah I think it did say that it was a pusher prop... but that's not really the whole reason that I bought it, I just looked at the wall o' props in the LHS and chose some 7'' ones it'll still work, it came perfectly balanced. In fact, I think with the opposite torque, it might do better because the video TX is on the left side of the wing (when looking from back). That's probably why I couldn't get it trimmed out, either... hmmmm

Sounds great! I just set up a pan system for the cam on my PopWing so now while I'm flying, the cam can turn to the right.... will be fun I set it up on a switch instead of rudder because sometimes when I'm using the throttle some rudder gets mixed in too... but I'll see how it does!

I just got back from my club's float fly.

My dad won a Flyzone DHC-2 Beaver TX-R.

Sweet.

I was once told that the best plane for a float fly is a slow stick with wheels. Took me a day or two to actually get the joke.
