Can anyone help with pitch? I don't know how what to change it to in relation to the number of turns and the rubber band size. Is it a big factor on how the plane flies?
Such as this one.<SNIP>Then you need a pitch gauge, couldn't find one, but there are some designs out there somewhere.<SNIP>
My first ? for you is "How many props do you have to play with?" I have a half dozen props that our High School coach gave us that HS students attempted to repitch. They are all out of balance and basically worthless. You CAN repitch props if you make a gauge and are very, very careful. You have to be sure you are only twisting the base of the prop and not pulling it forward or backward, then get both sides EXACTLY the same pitch. IMHO, it is much, much easier to match the rubber size to a prop that has not been modified, especially for a 12-15yr. old builder/flyer. I don't doubt that repitching a prop can be a small advantage at times, but I'd be very surprised if it was significant, or could not be almost duplicated by doing something else.Can anyone help with pitch?
