Digital scales from the Physics lab would suffice, along with a digital tension scale rigged to measure drag.
I would need at least 6 bodies though, all the top ones. If RCTech members each bought me one, I would spray them a solid color and test them (No masking, no pretty paint, etc. I wouldn't want folks to think I'm just trying to get free bodies) . Upon completing my study, they would be either destroyed or given to kids at Debbies RC world in VA, Beach.
I've got the month of December off. It would be a fun project. A full article complete with nice photos, graphs and an excel spreadsheet would be published here with futureal's permisson.
