Or can/must one 'load' the elements' performance figures or specs first in order for the program to calculate & 'do its thing'?
MotoCalc and DriveCalc both have large numbers of motors/props "pre-loaded"... so that all you need to do is select a motor and a prop... add in the voltage you wish to use... and the programs will compute the rest for you.... it is a great way to play with props and voltages to see what might
work for you... rather than having to go out and buy motors and props.. and then find you made lousy choices.
You can also add your own test data if you wish.
