Yes - a standard prop will have a straight trailing edge, a cupped one will
have a curved trailing edge with the curve towards the rear. Kinda like
the early British aircraft carriers that had a curved ramp at the front of
ship to boost planes into the air.

I believe the "cupped" prop performs better at high speed.
