The teststand is standing... eh... floating.

Left: Test platform and a radio remote control switch based on a 433 MHz OOK module. The chipstar board receives the remote signal to switch the EMdrive on or off.
It also sends the rotation rate of the platform.

Middle: Teststand floating

Right: Rotation rate graph (platform slightly swinging like a pendulum due to imperfect center of gravity position, stabilizes within 30 minutes with cover over the system)

As soon as the cavity is ready, we´ll perform the test.

Very cool. How soon do you think the cavity will be ready for testing?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Jo was on holiday this week, but I think he can finalize it very fast. After he ships it to me from UK, I´ll buid up the experiment immediately.
