TWR 1 won't hover?

"TWR of exactly one will not make the rocket hover in place"

Will not? I think you mean, it _will_.

But I haven't tested this. So maybe somebody can confirm it for me?— Preceding unsigned comment added by TerryDactyl (talkcontribs) 18:04, 27 February 2015‎ (UTC)

Yes that is the idea behind the TWR. If the thrust and weight are exactly the same their ratio is 1 and with both being exactly the same the net force is 0 (for the TWR only the thrust part pointing towards the surface is counted). — xZise [talk] 05:43, 28 February 2015 (CST)

Should the first person voice with its anecdotes be amended to be less anecdotal and more objective and authoritative? -- ~~Nathan 10/15/15 0001h UTC
