Has anyone tried or tested or made available a prop for the T200, 4 bladed or much higher pitched for example, to make it more highly effecient at lower speeds for solar powered asv/usv? Thank you.
Hi @Solared, welcome to the forum
I haven’t tried this kind of thing, but if you’re going to would recommend doing some CFD simulations to determine efficient shapes. Having a smooth surface is also likely important, so I’d suggest either using a resin printer to make them, coating an FDM print in epoxy/resin, or printing and post-processing a mould which you can then use to cast/set one (or several) props from with a suitable plastic.
Perhaps others in the community can chime in with any experience they have with making or designing custom props
