Default Question about motor placement/thrust angle on wing

I'm building a Concrusher delta wing. It calls for 2-3 degrees right thrust on the motor mount. Does this mean that if I'm looking at the motor from the back of the plane, that it is angled to the right by the 2-3 degrees? I just want to make sure about this before I mount it. Thanks.

Jagzilla:

Correct, looking from the back. Always looking from the pilots orientation as also in autos.
