    That's what I thought but to slow down to land you also go to 0%??

    0% is about as close to a prop feather as you can get.

    Rhett, if the engine is on then yes, 0% will help slow you down. But if the engine is off, 0% reduces the amount of drag the props create as they cut through the air at as close to a 90 degree angle as possible.
