You have rotor as separate object. Then you set keyframe in H frame 0 to 0.0.. If you will place another key in H in frame 1 to 360.0 it will mean constant full rotation per 1 frame.. So you need to add another key at frame 2 but not in 720, but f.e. 1080 (because 360*1+360*2=1080), and so on. so on.
Of course some nodal motion editor will help a lot, but it's doable without it too like above.

To look good you will need a lot of motion blurring.. But it's very time consuming. Alternatively you can model smudge as triangle for each blade and made transparent the closer outer edge.
