i suggest renaming the thread something like "Hamilton Standard variable camber propeller" or something to that effect.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

FWIW, in urban mobility circles there is a resurgence of interest in something very similar, the stacked coaxial propeller. There is no variable pitch, but it does have two rows of co-rotating propellers not uniformly spaced.
For example you could have two rows of three bladed props, with the rear row being phased only 10 degrees behind the front one.
