Hello, I have been trying to solve an issue with a propeller and think I may have just come up with the solution.
Original problem: Propeller not generating any thrust just drag at 50 mph 900 radians/second yet generating thrust at 0 mph at 900 radians/second?
Probable solution theory: the simulation is not accounting for the wind speed that will spin the propeller at higher speeds. Think of it as a pinwheel, when you run faster the pin wheel speeds up and creates minimal drag. The same thing should be happening with a propeller. As the plane gets faster, the propeller should be rotating faster because of the airspeed. I don’t know if this is the reason why but I would like conformation that this is what is happening?
Thank you for your time, help, and expertise,

To also add to this I did a little more reaserch and I found out the the propeller should be producing more thrust because of the airflow?
