Platform Racing 2
The hat was added to the game slightly over a week after its release on 2008-05-13. The Propeller Hat is nearly an exact copy of the EXP Hat, with the only differences being that it's horizontally flipped and has a rotating propeller blade at the top.
Pressing and holding the up arrow key while in midair causes the player to fall slower, allowing them to cross larger gaps that they could not otherwise.
The Propeller Hat is available as the prize of Hat Factory in the original campaign and Volcanic Inferno in the speed campaign. Unlike other prizes, the hat is awarded to every player who finishes instead of only the winner. The hat also effectively replaced the EXP Hat as Hat Factory's prize when it was released.
Platform Racing 3
Returning in Platform Racing 3 as one of the first hats designed for the game, the Propeller Hat features an entirely new design as the EXP Hat was modified to look similar to its previous appearance, now more accurately resembling its real life counterpart. Unlike in Platform Racing 2, the propeller does not spin at any point.
Users wearing the hat will be given an extra boost when they super jump, increasing their overall height. This makes the Propeller Hat the only returning hat to have its ability altered entirely, with the Parasol Hat serving its original purpose.
