A fast calculation method is developed to calculate the effect of distributed propellers on wing lift distribution. This paper attempts to find the law of this influence, which is useful for guiding the aircraft design and the design of the control law. The results indicate that distributed asynchronous propeller can be used to change the lift distribution of the wing, and further, it may be possible to obtain an arbitrary shape of the load distribution for our purposes, such as gust alleviation, deformation suppression and so on.
