Propeller wrong flow trajectories

I have a problem that was raised several times (here: How to show a force generate by a propeller with flow simulation , and here:Propeller wash does not seem accurate ), but still have not found answers.

I'm trying to simulate thrust generated by a rotating propeller, but the flow trejectories seems to be wrong- just turning around.

I tried to add additional sufrace goal at the disk far behind the probpeller- no matter what the goal is, it keeps 0 value. I also forced the numer of travels and all goals covergance-  tejectories looks better but simulation goes extremly fast and goals values looks to low.

Has someone any idea whats wrong?
