Couple of choices.
You CAN make a variable pitch prop block, complicated, but doable.
What I do is make a couple varying over the range of interest, they don't take long. Indoor planes typically use P/D ratios in the 1.4 to 1.6 range. Make up a bunch of blades, select the P/D closest to the prop you are trying and just use it. Minor variations from ideal aren't real critical.
alright thank you
which wood grain would you usually use for props? i dont quite remember, but is it b?
honestly, it's not about the medals. go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things, have one heck of a time, because that's all that matters.
