Variable pitch propellers (VPP) are a type of propeller with blades that can be rotated to change the angle of incidence, also known as a propeller’s pitch.  The goal of this project was to create a multipurpose VPP mount so that the propeller could be isolated and tested for performance in the wind tunnel, then compair the propeller's performance when mounted to a model aircraft.  Several prototypes were created however completion  was impeded by competing client and manufacturer demands and relations
