>Hi guys >>I was wondering when you go to use the prop condtioner when >the engines are not running will the propellers still be >able to adjust the pitch ? >>Best regards, >>-Shane No.The prop lever doesn't directly set the pitch. It sets the desired RPM, which will mean different pitches for different power settings and airspeeds. This is done via the governor, which is controlled using engine oil.A great tutorial on props is found here:-http://www.avweb.com/articles/pelperch/pelp0016.htmlBe warned: it's detailed.
