Tyto Robotics has completed a study comparing the effect of inter-rotor distance, propeller size and relative propeller speed on total thrust and torque generated as well as propeller and propulsion system efficiency.
The article covers:
- How propeller speed and rotor separation affect thrust and torque generation
- Impact of front propeller size on thrust and torque generation
- Propeller efficiency
The company used two Flight Stand 50 test stands for the tests, which measure up to 50 kgf of thrust and 30 Nm of torque, as well as RPM, voltage, current, mechanical power, electrical power, propeller efficiency, motor efficiency, and overall propulsion system efficiency.
