CFD with FPV racing drones

I am currently checking the feasibility of computational fluid dynamics with racing drones in Autodesk CFD2018.

This is one of my first attempts to simulate a simple copter draft by Heiko Schenk. I am still very new to CFD, so I am looking for feedback too.

I am including the effect of the propeller jet (velocity distribution and swirl) and also the motor housing rotation. The flow velocities of the propellers were calculated in JavaProp (33000 RPM, 360 Watts, 30 m/s, 3 blades, 5 inch diameter).

Watch this video for more information and some results:


  1. Als trailers are specialize in building quality RVs including A-frame, Fifth wheel, Toy hauler, Motor homes, Travel Trailers and has a great service team.
    Alstrailers has the largest collection of major brands & models like A-frame, Fifth wheel, Toy hauler, Motor homes, Travel Trailers in Salem, Portland - Oregon.

  2. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are looking to trade methods with others, be sure to shoot me an email if interested. long range drones for sale

  4. Here you mention a very useful article .its very interesting s

  5. Hello do you know the coefficient of friction of the drone with this study?

  6. If one considered shopping for a racing drones, it'd be cited as a crazy call, however over the past few years, the progress that this technology has created are a few things that has created a buzz. whether or not it's for the event of economic applications or for his or her superb technology and recognition, these sport drones have gained tons of footage.
