Hi I am building a quadro-copter, and i'm curious to know how i can calculate the thrust generated by a motor/propeller combo. The motors are brushless electric motors for which i know the max RPM. The propellers are two bladed for which the diameter and pitch are known. Is there a simple equation for which i can use in order to calculate the thrust/lift a particular combo will produce. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
