Hey guys, 
i'll have a question. First of all sorry for my bad english [Image: smile.png].
But my question is, how can i test the strength (trust en how much it can lift) and what kind of things do i need to test it.

Thanks
I assume you want to measure the thrust of the engine. You need to build a test stand. Something like this, even though this one has issues. http://wiki.lvl1.org/Rocket_Engine_Test_Stand

Do a search and you should find other examples:.
Okay, thanks!
