APC Propeller Performance Data
The performance data files available on our website are an excellent source for comparing APC propellers to one another.
The performance data are based on vortex theory,
using actual propeller geometry. The NASA Transonic Airfoil Analysis
Computer Program is used to generate estimates for section lift and
drag. As a result, airfoil drag is under-predicted at lower speeds and
computed results may not match experimental results for all scenarios.
