Blade angle

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the actual blades angles of a propeller set "on the cuff" in preparation for a windmill taxi start the USAF airlift C-130E/H method? Thanks

No, he wants to know where the cuff puts the blade angle.  I don't know off-hand, and it's not in the Lockheed training manuals.

I think we answered Fred's question. Looks like 50 degrees based on the chart above. Now position the aircraft and start the check list.
