I have been using a test stand to measure static thrust, current, voltage,watts, RPM, and temperature.
It is a rolling platform mounted on screen door ballbearing wheels that run on an aluminum
angle track and pull a linear scale. It is set up for 15 pounds thrust but a differnt scale would work fine for lower thrust values. I am measuring 26/14 props on 48, 3000nimh cells,which unfortunatley hits the stops so I need to get a 20 pound scale. Fish weighing scales are not too expensive and work OK.
