Question

Motocalc


Right forum for this question?

Just starting with Motocalc and Motowizard. In the Wizard, I see no prompts that an underlying assumption is that the props it analyzes are 2 Bl. Is this correct and is there a way to calculate results for 3 and 4 blades?

Thanks

In the 'Drive System' area (lower left) there's a box for 'Num Blades:'. Two blades is the default if you leave the box empty, otherwise enter 3, 4 or even more.
PS - I think this only appears on the main screen, not the wizard.

Thanks Gordon. Yes, I had seen that but never yet have gotten beyond the Wizard. The main seems to ask many questions about motor that I need to be solving for. Looks like I'll have to read the instructions. Damn.
