Default RE: Transitional Pitched Prop???


ORIGINAL: crashdummy6

Well, by looking at it, it really looks more angled closest to the hub and much flatter toward the tips. Your explanation makes sense to me about the cowling. I am just not sure it holds up with what I see on the prop. Off course it could be my eyes. That is why I need a big plane I guess.
Thanks
Even a prop with the same pitch designation along the blade will look like this so that doesn't tell you anything.

The reason the pitch is higher toward the tip is that the tips are more efficient and can handle the higher pitch.
