    Question about pitching leading edge (pics):

    Where on the red and blue marked areas do I want to bend?

    Good post. I haven't messed with a leading edge yet because I also didn't know where to bend.

    Thanks for the info Beerdart.

    The red line gets cupped from bending the blue line. Yes you want the pitch progressive from leading to trailing. So depending on how much you bend will determine how much you progress down to the trailing and vice-versa. I will post a pic tonight of the cupping.

    +1 You want the pitch to be as progressive as possible so you do not create a bind in the water flow.

    Here is a pic both props are the same except the pitch. The one on the right is 16-22 and the one on the left is 11-19 notice how the "red" area is cupped on the 16-22.

    While too much of anything is bad, is the cup something that is ideal? or are you just stating that it is a by-product of bending props?

    Personally, I try to get all the way to root angle. but I'm by no means a pro at pitching props.

    This might help some people out:
