When using a prop for pusher must put in backward to keep the attack edge

Any way I'm sure you read more than I do.
I must say I am with Crist on this one.... for a moment it looked like he was right and one of the pictures looked like the prop is installed the wrong way...
even looking at the pictures two posts ago they all look wrong.
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.

It is mounted properly on all photos. But it is easy to get confused, since some photos are taken from an unfavourable perspective. No reason to blame anyone...

Did no one notice the tip? It's the right way around.

Okay, folks, those who want to see something that indeed is mounted erroneously, check out the attached photo I copied from a webshop.

It is from one vendor that sells our Skywalker. Not going to mention name. But the "culprit" will recognize it

Anyway, not a problem. Just a bit funny.
Oh, and I can recommend this vendor nevertheless! Keep it up, Hooks!

Luiz,

what did you use to glue these magnets in the foam.
On my Polish EPP bird I have tried both with CA and UHU Por, and on the first try the magnets ripped themselves straight out of the foam...

Is there a special technique?

Unless he puts the prop as a tractor then it's not a tail but canards.

Definitely out-of-the-box. Remember to reverse the elevator.

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.

Cheers

Habib,
The prop in the picture that I was referring to looks like it has been put on the motor shaft backwards. After closely studying the picture it does look like its on correctly. All I asked was if it was me. Obviously it was me. Son of Paleface's comments about not reading the thread is what I took exception to. I felt there was no need to discuss your pictures because they were not the object of the last several posts. I meant no disrespect to you at all.

I don't know if you can buy them separately but the Radian has neat magnet holders. They slide into the foam and the magnet slides into a groove in them. No way they can come out unless the foam breaks.
