"Shawyer cautions that the calculations only work for static thrusts.
'You can't beat the laws of physics. If it is used to accelerate, the Q
value drops. It is best used to lift a body and oppose a force, for
instance to counteract gravity. It cannot be used to accelerate further.'"
What if it opposes gravity, and then another force is used to accelerate it?
Does the Q value drop then?
Also this does not make it clear whether using the drive to accelerate is
impossible or just impracticle.
