HotRod Motor/Prop Test Stand


Junior Member
I just pimped my motor/prop test stand and wanted to share a couple pics. It's just two scrap pieces of 2"x6", black spray paint, Rubber feet from Home Depot and a 10"x19" decal. I'll attach the flames art .pdf for those interested. :)

Pretty cool looking.
I was thinking something similar but for thrust measuring.
I am currently toying around with adding a thrust measuring ability to it. I am going to use a small digital fish scale. Drill a 3/4" hole and mount the motor on a drawer track with ball bearings. As the motor pulls, it slides out the track and pulls the digital fish scale. I seen a guy make something similar on youtube, but I want to hide it all inside the HotRod test stand, so only the digital readout is seen on the side. Still some work to do, but i'll post pics/vid when it's done.
