Beginners Guide to Motor and Prop Selection
One of the most often asked questions on RC Groups is from people who want to know which motor and prop to select for their particular plane. Even the most experienced and knowledgeable flyers among us are often confused by this seemingly dark and mysterious process of choosing the right motor and prop.
It's my contention that with a little bit of background knowledge, and the right tools, this whole confusing process can be laid out in the open and exposed for what it really is; which is nothing more than child's play - so easy that even I can do it.
With that in mind then, the goal of this mini-tutorial will be as follows:
1) Make it so that anyone can pick the right motor and prop for their plane.
2) Do it in a way that eliminates long and complex formulas and other nonsense.
3) Use real world examples along the way so that we can apply what we've learned.
