Thanks again everyone for your comments.
I have read on other threads that most featuring props require periodical maintenance, Variprop, Maxprop etc.. I have also heard the same with Autoprop, but requireing annual maintenance (bearing replacement) and overhaul. Some owners had experienced losing Autoprop blades.
and other owners have experienced no or very little problems or maintenance with their feathering or Autoprop.
I suspect these are extreme cases and/or perhaps some impact from salt water.
Is the above a valid concern - can anyone share further experiences ???
