Why are RPMs and Prop Pitch controls assigned to the same key?

0

An aircraft is either has constant speed propeller controls (which controls RPMs directly and automatically adjusts the prop pitch) or variable pitch propeller controls (which effect RPMs by manually changing the pitch of the propeller). Since these controls are mutually exclusive, it made sense to assign the functions to the same keys.
