Hi Developers:

I am trying to use SU2 as a tool to analyse the flow field around a Quad-rotors UAV.
However, I am wonder (1) whether it is possible to fix the main-body of Quad-rotors, and make the blades rotors?
(2) whether it is possible to define different propellers rotating at different directions and velocity in SU2?


Thanks a lot

Hi Zhiyi

As for your question 2, I think you can, but at first you have to figure out how two define more than one reference frame
I think you can find it in the official config file template .
