lowest drag for fixed 3 blade?
I have an Ericson 31I with a 15" fixed three blade prop. Being that a self-feathering prop is out of the budget, what is the lowest drag situation for this fixed 3-blade gear:
1- freely rotating
2- locked in the "mickey mouse" position with two blades up and one inline with the keel?
3-quit worrying about the details and just sail.
