    Nah, the faster you go the coarser the pitch you need. Just like my 182; the prop is flat pitched for slower flight like takeoff and landing, and coarser as you speed up.

    With flat props the engines would just way overspeed before you got going fast.

    Sorry, yeah, I meant the leading edge of it, there's a sweep to it vs just coming out of the hub

    Not quite, those blades on the plane look like right triangles. They don't pass my visual "looks about right" rule but what do I know

    That's right, I had forgotten. Oh well....that part of the mystery is solved.

    With a last name of Crow, I would call my planes, "The Raven", or "Never More"...

    Or at least put on the side....

    "Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wondering from the nightly shore,

    Tell me what thy lordly name is on the nights plutonian shore.!!"

    And see how many people get the reference.

    Desperate is probably what it would take. I mean, that thing looks wicked fast just sitting on the ramp but it’d be a huge double handful on OE.

    For the tail number... Maybe the guy's just an evil lawyer.

    As for the plane... Yikes. I'm sure it goes like stink, but IMO it's a death trap if you lose one. I don't know why they spaced the engines so far away from the fuselage, but to my eye there's no way there's enough vertical tail/rudder to keep control of it if an engine quits.
