    If it's hovering then there is no resultant force, so we can infer that weight = change in momentum / time.

    So as weight is equal to 0.6 we can say that the change in momentum is = to 0.6 x 10 = 6.0kgms-1

    Momentum is equal to mass x velocity so velocity = change in momentum / mass = 6 / 1.5 = 4.0ms-1
