This webpage includes wind tunnel measurements for 40 Aero-Naut CAM carbon fiber folding propellers. 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.

Notes

  1. Unless otherwise noted, the propeller size is given in inches, e.g. AeroNaut CAM 9x4F is a 9-inch diameter propeller with a pitch of 4 inch/revolution. Note, this was achieved using a 42-mm yoke.
  2. Coefficients are based on the propeller diameter.
  3. The four digit numbers below in the 'Data' category represent the propeller RPM values of each run.
  4. The power coefficient data below were obtained from the measured torque and rotational speed.
