If my engine goes and Im trying to glide home should my prop pitch be 100% or 0%?

That's what I thought but to slow down to land you also go to 0%??

0% is about as close to a prop feather as you can get.

Rhett, if the engine is on then yes, 0% will help slow you down. But if the engine is off, 0% reduces the amount of drag the props create as they cut through the air at as close to a 90 degree angle as possible.

Didn't need to worry about drag with this:
