Re: Propeller drag test under sail.
The drag on hem is so minimal that it would be hard to measure differences. MIT has already done it far more accurately than I could and all the folders and feathering props they tested did very well and had minimal drag......
Sorry, I was unclear. I meant, have you ever tested the impact of leaving a feathering prop in neutral as opposed to reverse on its ability to fold or turn the shaft against the motor. All are told to leave a feathering prop in neutral, although, I've always wondered how important that really is.
