This improved design does a better job of holding your dragster during the painting process. The dragster is suspended by the cartridge hole. After it is on the stand, the dragster can be rotated (by turning the mounting peg) to paint all sides. Special plastic material enables the wet paint to be wiped off the stand. Also makes a great display for finished dragsters!

See your measurements as colorful graphic images that can be printed and analyzed. The X-Stream Data Acquisition software works with your computer to add an extra element of interest to measurements displayed digitally on the handheld control unit. Displays results from the VPS and the Stinger Mount measuring devices. Note: Software will not operate with X-Stream Wind Tunnel alone; it requires the VPS or Stinger Mount Sensor. Cable included.

X-Stream Wind Tunnel

Go high tech with your technology and science curricula with this adjustable-speed, quiet-as-a-breeze wind tunnel. No louder than a room fan, X-Stream requires no hearing protection. When paired with the Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS) and Stinger Mount Sensor, the X-Stream can measure forces on objects as diverse as dragsters, airfoils, rockets, and geometric shapes.

The X-Stream is quality made, too. A low-restriction flow straightener, combined with a 6:1 compression ratio intake bell, converts turbulent airflow into smooth, laminar airflow for repeatable test results. The large testing chamber accommodates a variety of objects, yet the unit is compact enough to sit on a six-foot table. Side and top polycarbonate window panels permit more light to enter the chamber and provide a better view.

This wind tunnel’s handheld control unit lets you adjust the speed of the air moving through the test chamber (up to 40 mph), and the included manometer indicates the actual speed. As air moves over an object, the control unit’s LCD panel displays the magnitude of the forces.

Features of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel include:

  • Quiet – great for classrooms and lab areas
  • Ratio-metrically designed for accuracy
  • Laminar flow provides zero-turbulence testing
  • Only six feet long – fits in any classroom
  • Extra-large 19" x 11-1/2" x 11-1/2" test chamber – view from both sides and top
  • Side panels are removable and customizable.
  • Convenient handheld control unit
  • Variable speed from 0-40 mph
  • Rugged ABS construction

Requires one available serial port. Note: Requires VPS or Stinger Mount to operate.

X-Stream Wind Tunnel with Stinger Mount

Measure drag on a variety of objects placed inside the testing chamber of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel including geometric shapes, vehicles, airfoils, bottle rockets, and solid-fuel rockets. The Stinger Mount also measures lift on wings! Includes instructions, hardware, and geometric objects. Data is displayed on the handheld controller or ported to a computer using optional X-Stream Data Acquisition software, sold separately.

Stinger Mount Sensor System offers several great features:

  • Use with CO2 dragsters (front drag only), rockets, airfoils, and geometric shapes
  • On-board display for instantaneous feedback
  • Versatile for many science and technology applications
  • Data-graphing and analysis software available

X-Stream Wind Tunnel with Vehicle Platform Sensor

The Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS) is an exceptional addition to your CO2 dragster program. When a model vehicle is positioned inside the testing chamber of the X-Stream Wind Tunnel, the VPS simultaneously measures lift forces on front and rear axles and front drag on the vehicle. Data is displayed on the handheld controller or ported to a computer using optional X-Stream Data Acquisition software. Includes hardware and instructions. Software sold separately.

Vehicle Platform Sensor (VPS)system offers several great features:

  • Use with CO2 dragsters and model vehicles
  • On-board display for instantaneous feedback
  • Simultaneous measurement of front drag and lift on both axles
  • Adjustable sensing plates accommodate a wide range of vehicle designs.
  • Data-graphing and analysis software available
