Propulsion

The propulsion groups are responsible for propeller selection, engine and motor testing, motor selection, and speed controller/battery selection.

  • The performance of an aircraft not only depends on the efficient design of the planform, but also on the efficiency of the conversion of engine/motor power to thrust at varying airspeeds.
  • Members gain knowledge of 2 stroke compression ignition engines, and brushless electric motors, as well as experience in engine testing and safety.
