Was some technical chutney last night over propellors and the differing approach to RPM management that the various nations have.

I mentioned some very helpful videos and wanted to link them:

Here is SYN Requiem on:

Fixed Pitch
Variable Pitch
and Constant Speed props.

All his videos are short and sweet and get to the point. I'd recommend watching all of them.

Cool. I just shifted it to The Lecture Room.
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.
