Dust effect Niagara

Take a look at this 3DLZ Helicopter Brownout Landing System 2014 Flight Test - YouTube and let me know what you think. I was going to try and tackle it using Niagara and Fluid Ninja but don’t really know where to start. The effect needs to be configurable based on distance to / from the blades and torque of a helicopter. As well as ideally adapt to lighting.

Can Niagara handle something like this or should I look into NinjaFluid or is there a better way of doing this?
Appreciate the help.
