I did "SEE" the result flying one of my smallish sport models one day. The model behaved absolutely homesick for the ground when the prop was in "windmill". This prop was rather "large" for the model for exceptional duration under power, but was a lead sled with the power off. One day I put an additional small servo on board to drive a pin into the arc of the spinning prop to stop it (a brake on the ESC was insufficient). The model glide improved subsantially!
it does NOT matter what altitude, size of model or size of prop. The relationship is constant unitl you get into "feathering".

Thank you guys, I knew I wasn't crazy when I converted to the higher RPM motor with the small prop and the plane seemed at least 10 to 15mph faster than the larger prop on landings. It really dumbfounded me at the time but it all makes total sense to me now.
