I’m looking for some design ideas for a propeller that can be mounted on top of the whirligig. I’ve searched around the internet but I’m not finding anything.
I started building a whirligig and I ran into an issue with my propeller design. I used a two blade propeller design (like you’d find on an airplane) however I mounted it on top of the whirligig instead of on the side. I now realize that the propeller needs to be perpendicular to the wind direction else it doesn’t work.
I’d like to keep the propeller on top of the whirligig any design suggestions?
