Heli blade automation problem

H, I'm trying to animate the blades of a helicopter. What I want is for the blades to spin up to a certain pace then stay at that pace. How do I do that?

There's a number of ways you could approach it:

1. Use a mograph time effector and animate the strength;

2. Use Xpresso -- feeding a time node into a rangemapper into the prop's H rotation; or probably the most straightforward method

3. Animate the H rotation on the first and last frames and then use a time track to control the speed of the rotation.

Im currently using mjr rotator v2 but the problem is that when I rotate the blades, the physical renderer doesnt show blur. But when I keyframe, it shows blur. How do I use time track, where do I access it?
