This webpage includes wind tunnel measurements for nearly 70 small-scale propellers. Thirty-five propellers were purchased off-the-shelf from retail outlets and were balanced for these tests. The remaining propellers are different configurations of four propellers that were manufactured using a 3D printer (DA4002, DA4022, DA4052, NR640). Measurements include thrust and torque coefficient data over a range of advance ratios for specific RPMs. Also measurements were taken in static conditions for a sweep over RPMs. The propellers have been digitized (approximately) and these data are included below.
