Electric Aviation - NASA interview on Maxwell X57 - Part 2: Propeller Design

For more information, visit https://www.airshaper.com or email info@airshaper.com ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In this second video in our series with NASA, we dive into the details of the propellers and how they compare to other propellers seen on e-VTOLs for example. The X57 features two very distinct propellers: - High lift propellers: these increase the local airflow speed around the wing, providing it with more lift. They aim for a uniform flow velocity to create a predictable and reliable increase in lift. - Cruise propellers: these are aimed at maximum efficiency and feature a higher axial flow speed at the tips of the propellers
