Vien -- I just browsed this brefly and was wondering if you thought they actually picked a measured throttle setting, or moved the throttle until they reached a desired RPM setting? It looks like the are stepping the RPMs and then reading thrust, relating the two kinetic variables, but I'm not sure. I'll check it out more tomorrow when I have time. I have two projects going with dealines of January 6th.

I see where it says, "Experiments have been done in a stepwise fashion where RPM is increased."

Here is a taste of some of the 16x8 data, but because we were not able to collect most of the multiple plot points on the same day, same motor, same battery, etc, we will probably have to retest again the next time out.
