motor/prop test bench


I'm new to this forum and just started flying electric a couple of months ago. I flew alot of gas about ten years ago.

I am trying to design and build a test bench with the ability to measure thrust using a postal scale of some sort. I have ordered a Wattmeter for the required electrical measurements.

I would greatly appreciate any advice or designs from any of you guys who have tried this.

Search the archives. I recall some discussion on thrust rigs about six months ago.
