Thanks whirlcap. I wont worry about it then. It looks normal to me too and what the plane should be doing to keep correcting when going slow.

I wonder did you check the RPM perhaps in your power draw tests? Could be that the lesser pitched prop is spinning much faster.

Here's a formula that's helpful: Pitch Speed = RPM x Pitch x (60/63360)

You can figure out what different props will do. In theory anyway. I suppose it depends on how much power you can get out of the motor given the weight and drag of the plane. I wish I knew more about this stuff.
