Description: Report discusses a proposal for propeller manufacturers to consider the side-force factor with the activity factor as a fundamental parameter for all blade designs and for the side-force factor to be included in all reports of powered models in wind tunnels. The proposal includes a method for calculating the side-force factor and how it can be used in propeller development. It is shown to be a good index of the relative effectiveness per blade of a yawed propeller in developing side force.
