it causes the prop blades to move parallel to the direction of airflow to eliminate drag. You feather the prop when the engine is dead.

For FB, it only works with certain aircraft. (He-111)

Feathering makes the propblades move in such a position so that they create the smallest amount of drag (or air-resistance) so, the airespeed doesn't suffer too much.

You only do this when the engine is dead.

measured to you again.
