    Neat. Nicely done. I don't know how many times over the years the question has been asked about how to use the CS prop, but this answers that very nicely -- thanks.

    I thought I'd add one item that folks are not likely to see in the sim -- electric prop pitch adjustment (not constant speed). The very early Bonanzas (1947-195?, through the E, perhaps G model on some) had an electrically adjustable propeller (some other makes did, too) which used a panel switch to increase or decrease the prop pitch (awkward when you're used to a constant speed), but no governor or automatic pitch control, thus a bit like the ground-adjustable you mentioned but adjustable in flight, also -- the pilot is the "governor."

    The animated prop image helps a lot. This video has been on my agenda for a couple of months but not until a few weeks ago did the animated prop blade idea come up. I had to figure out how to do all that animating to have it make sense and it worked out nicely.
