What is the propeller pitch ?
The "Propeller Pitch" is a technical term for one of Propeller characteristics.
It is the displacement a propeller makes in a complete spin of 360° degrees. This means that if we have a propeller of 40” pitch it will advance 40 inches for every complete spin as long as this is made in a solid surface; in a liquid environment, the propeller will obviously slide with less displacement.
