Default RE: Transitional Pitched Prop???

Hey, a prop does not have less pitch near the tip. It has less angle, but the pitch is the same unless it is one of the multi-pitch props with higher pitch at the tip.

The pitch of a prop is how far it would move forward in one revolution given a perfect medium. As you move outward toward the tip, the distance of one revolution is greated so the angle is less to compensate for this. If you use a pitch guage on a single pitch prop, you'll find the pitch is the same even though the angle decreases towards the tip.
