No adjustments, would make it crash (depending on the CG and thrust vectoring) - multirotors adjust thrust distribution "all" the time.
Then I'd suggest that you just hang it (disarmed) and do the measurements while ejecting…"
"I understand you want to test recovery from being hit by a water stream.
Be sure to use propellers that can handle the water stream/spray whithout breaking.
