Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a very basic question. Theoretically,I need to make a load hover (in real terms i'm makin a heli).

I wanted to do the calculations for how much power is needed by the prime mover (engine/motor doesn matter) to hover. i.e to give thrust(T) = weight of (load+Motor).

Can someone please tell me this equation that relates Power(P) and Thrust(T) at zero velocity i.e hovering.

Dont worry about prop diameter/aerodynamic characteristics etc at this moment. I'm just looking for the minimum power of the prime mover(energy source) to give me the ability to hover a certain weight

Thanks!
