Manual prop pitch

Recommended Posts

I'm using axis aircraft at the moment but can not find out how the  dial indicator for the prop pitch hand positions relate to the actual pitch of the propeller

can anyone enlighten me.

 

thanks

Dial indicator for the prop pitch is almost useless anyway. If you want fly with manual prop pitch, you need monitor tachometer (RPM) and adjust prop to get required RPM. As an example: for climb - 2600 RPM and 1.3 ATA, so you use throttle to get required ATA, and prop pitch to get required RPM. And RPM affects ATA, and ATA affects RPM, but just a little bit. Big influence on RPM has speed. You need to be extra cautious in dive.
