Propeller efficiency

With our project, we want to investigate the efficiency of propellers. To do that, we made a construction so we can calculate the power of the propeller and the power of the engine. If we divide the power of the propeller with the power of the engine, that gives us the efficiency of the propeller. In that way we can compare different propellers (number of blades, angle of attack of the blades,…) and see which kind of propeller is the most efficient.
