Ion Thrust Lab Motor Test 8 (Toilet Paper Breeze Test)

Initially a breeze is kicked up but successive pulses don’t show sufficient breeze to explain it’s acceleration. For the amount of static thrust it’s generating the wind from a propeller on a small electric motor generating the same static thrust would be enormous on to toilet paper wind indicator. In fact I sitting here at my desk can make the toilet paper move with a breeze from my mouth with the motor shut off not affected at all by the breeze from my mouth two meters away.
