Helicopter Liftoff: How Does the Speed of the Rotor Affect the Amount of Lift? [E]
which propeller was the most efficient for my remote control airplane [E]
Determine how much lift a rotating cylinder generates when compared to an airplane propeller and a helicopter blade. [E] [E]
Optimizing the Blade Camber of a Free-Falling Rotor [E] [E]
Show that by increasing the pitch of a propeller it will generate more thrust, while at the same time less RPM, and draw more power. [E] [E]
