Hi All. Been a long time since I do not post here :)

I just wanted to share this video which I thought was really really good.

I think I finally understood why we have constant RPM systems :)

A fascinating watch.... :clap: ...!

Many thanks for refreshing my/our knowledge of; "aerofoils".

Valuable information for sim pilots flying variable pitch, variable speed, constant speed, etc, propeller aircraft!

Remember that magic lever, between the Throttle(s) and the Mixture Lever(s)...the Propeller Lever(s)!... :o ...!

Very useful to know how it works...and its dangers in use!!

It is a good video, and still in use despite its age (it was produced just after the Tucano arrived in RAF service which meant everyone would fly an aircraft with a constant speed propellor).

There's a spinning one that is worth a watch too.
