    Default Anemometer for Measuring Thrust?

    Probably a laughably naive question but is it possible to use an anemometer at a set distance from the outer edge of the duct to measure thrust? I don't need an absolute figure; just a comparison between blade pitches...

    Let me know once you've all finished laughing!

    the anemometer will measure the velocity of the air but that in itself is not enough

    strapping it to a tree with a set of weighing scales is a good method but just use it as a comparison i.e. more or less than last time

    good luck
