I stumbled upon this graph showing the decrease in specific thrust (Thrust by Power) in relation to velocity, for a Schuebeler EDF:

https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Specific-thrust-T-P-vs-airspeed-graph-of-Schuebeler-DS51-EDF-unit-based-on-wind-tunnel_fig3_304115129

enter image description here

(Is this a good example for EDF thrust reduction with airspeed, in general?)

The main question I have is how would the decrease with speed for a fixed-pitch propeller compare to the EDF decrease? Any graphs to illustrate?

(ignoring the initial increase of thrust for cruise -fixed-pitch props)

Thanks
