Martyn, yomgui, et. al.,

Thanks for the help and links. There is some interest there but the math is just too intensive for me. I'm still getting a lot of value out of the way Robert Goble has the prop data at FlyBrushless.com. That is about the level of interest and practicality I enjoy.

As a last question, knowing that each different testing setup can change the results a little, if you turn a given prop at a specific RPM with a number of different motors, wouldn't the thrust produced be about the same for every motor?

jrb,

I like the "hang in there baby!" testing setup, that is one I have used myself.
