Nice, you may want to stop down of you lens to get a bit more rotor blur. F32 is pretty go for that. Your shutter speed is pretty fast so it almost freeze the rotor. If you get you shutter speed down to 1/60 -1/125 it would give a nice rotor blur effect.

The way to do it if you are not wanting to go manual exposure is to use shutter priority as in these situations the shutter speed is what you want to control rather than the aperture. Full manual is best as the bright sky will usually cause under exposure, next best is shutter priority with exposure compensation.

I did try shutter priority, but Aperture priority did a pretty good job also. They both work, but you get more consistence with rotor blur with Shutter set to 1/60 vs using Aperture priority. Manual was rough, did over expose as I was tracking. Could not adjust fast enough.
