Aerospace Calculating motor/calculator thrust

  1. Oct 11, 2011 #1
    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.
