Thrust testing numbers are always relative and should only be compared when the testing was done at the same time on the same tester. Those are the only results we will include here on footflyer.
Besides the elevation/temperature/humidity, there is a large variation between the same model motors and props. For example, two identical motors, right out of the factory and spinning the same prop (take it off one, bolt it on the other motor) may vary by 5%. The same is true of props. Two props from the same manufacturer, with the same pitch/length and the same material can vary in thrust by 3 to 5%. So take all thrust tests with a healthy dose of salt but they are still valuable as single datapoints.
These tests were done the evening of Feb 16, 2008, by Jeff Hamann on a non-calibrated tester near San Diego, CA. Thanks to Jeff for sharing.
