What is it about?
The behavior of a propeller at incidence has been long associated, somehow, with the behavior of a wing. However, no solid proof has been demonstrated to date. We show that part of a propeller thrust at incidence can indeed be considered equivalent to a wing lift component and the second part is an axial component.
