Default A Flying Model's Power Is Equal To...

Thrust is the ability to effect state of mass. The closer to a 1:1 thrust to weight ratio, the more mass can be effected. At a point, the mass, if properly shaped, will move. Some would say that is hot air. I respectfully disagree, it need only be ambient temperature.

Flight is probable when 1.625 (X) thrust = AUW of model.
