Here are some quick instructions for the PAR Calculator, which is still in beta. Some formatting changes and text corrections still need to be made, but I want to complete the beta testing so I can make all the semi-final changes at the same time.
I've also included an image illustrating the measurements that are required in order to calculate PAR values. These measurements should calculate to the exact same value as if we calculated the MAC (mean aerodynamic cord) and multiplied it by the wingspan. Anything close to a 100 PAR is very good, and you should find some that will be as high as 115.
Please remember that PAR is a highly subjective ranking, and you should instead focus more on the actual values associated with them, such as wing loading, wing cube loading, power loading (Watts per pound), pitch speed, stall speed, etc.
My suggestion is to add data for your favorite planes, and perhaps establish your own PAR. Then use the PAR Calculator to identify planes and power systems that share similar values with your personal PAR.
For more information about the PAR Calculator, PAR values, or to ask about a specific motor, prop, and cell count, configuration that you may be considering, feel free to ask.
