Default Dynamic What?

OK, most of us know what dynamic soaring is but has anyone tried it with a powered plane? Would the prop actually slow the plane down?

If you have enough RPM and pitch speed, DS'ing could work well. BUT, if you are shooting for 300+mph and the motor/prop combo is not ever going to unload to that...then it will hit a wall at some point... or the side of a slope if you 're not a good pilot

If you were way over propped, it could be interesting.
