Moment is negated with above propeller spinning arrangement. Propeller need to generate force called lift. Both Newton 3rd law of motion or Bernoulli’s principle can be use to explain how lift is generated. Fig. 1.1 Fig. 1.2 Fig 1.1 Newton 3rd law, the propeller pushes a column of air downwards to create an opposite but equal trust force upwards. Fig 1.2 Bernoulli’s principle. As speed of air increases, pressure is reduced, thus creating a net force (lift) upward. SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING 6 CHAPTER 2 2.0 DESIGN CONSIDERATION FOR PROPELLER The propeller is a spinning wing, Air moves over the surface of the airfoil generating lift. But for a quadcopter, a small motor rotates the airfoil at high speed and the propeller transform the rotory power to upward lift. Unlike an aircraft wings, the propeller is twisted. The tip of the propeller has a higher angular velocity than the hub of the propeller. Therefore, the blade must have a lower angle of attack at the blade than at the tip (ie twist) to produce an even amount of thrust on the blade. Therefore, propeller blades are designed twisted for stability.
