I assume this is connected with building a drone that can lift 600 Kg. NO this isn't going to happen for you. think of another project to do.

Do yourself a big favour and use Google more often ;)
Apart from finding tons of info and images on hilicopter rotors there is also common sense:
A helicopter needs to produce a lot of lift with the rotor and the blades should provide as little air resistance for forward travel as possible.
A ceiling fan only moves air around and not even with good efficiency....

2. the fan blade is short, flat and angled to drive air down or up.

3. too heavy.

4 Too weak.
