Realair beach - curiosity question on the RPM gauge

Recommended Posts

On the RPM gauge it says fast engine and there is a little wheel that goes clockwise and anti clockwise has an arrow pointing clockwise that says Right engine FAST just wondered what It means is it your engine revs are too high ? sometimes the wheel spins clockwise or anti-clockwise when the rev counter is in the green?

 

Cheers

It is a prop sync gauge.

 

When it spins clockwise the right prop is spinning faster than the left.

 

You use it to fine tune prop speed.

Joe

Thank you

Don't think I noticed it before but then I used to have a single throttle controller and now have a double so probably don't sync automatically now , thank you :-)
