For those who can't seem to slow down for landing, etc.

For slowing down: pitch % high, power % low.

For good cruise: pitch % low, power % low.

You can lose speed with low pitch and low power but it will take much longer than with high pitch. Also for landing open that radiator! Soon you will find the need to add power as you flatten out on final.

Try getting speed up and then lowering pitch also.

None as good as manual pitch with a good EM pilot but still the CSP prop hits the stops well short of feather on coarse. You cut power low enough at high enough speed, the prop is driving the engine and you will slow down till the engine is keeping up or driving the plane even if you end up losing alt in the process.
