ODE: How to make a propeller

Recommended Posts

I need to simulate a propeller with the open dynamics engine. How should i connect the propeller to the engine? Use a hinge joint for the connection and an angular motor to rotate it? Is it a problem that it will rotate with up to 10000 RPM? I dont need it to simulate thrust, which i will simulate by applying an extra force. It should take care of the precission(?) moment that the rotating propeller generates. thanks for your help.
