There's a great article on all the nuances of CEM by Jeff Gerhardt, better known here as Vulgar. I have a copy. If you can't find it on a google search, let me know here, and I'll host the copy on my server space.

hi

prop pitch is like gears in cars, a lower pitch is like a higher gear. When flying at high speed ull get high rpm, which isnt good for the engine. When flying at low speed with a low prop pitch ull have to few rpm and the engine will die.

the correct prop pitch depends on the plane ure flying, in some 109 u have to set the pitch to 30% at 400kmh, in a stuka u hardly ever need to pitch (exept when diving).

for the beginning try to keep the engine at 2500 rpm, when diving decrease pitch, when climbing increase.

like gears in a car ull also gather more speed by shifting up / decreasing prop-pitch

For some idea of what it's supposed to be modelling, have a look at this one about real aircraft propellors: http://www.avweb.com/news/columns/182082-1.html
