Burrabit's from Virginia a 12 volt system (Ametek 30)
Hi Terry, I finally got up my wind generator. Its working great, I went with the patriotic theme and did red white and blue, I wish I had painted the generator blue instead of red though, cause it would have made the yaw unit and it look like one piece, but it still looks pretty good red.
Today we had steady 9 mile a hour winds from the north (according to the airport 20 miles or so away) I think our winds were the same, cause mine yawed in that same north direction all day.
Your yaw mount tracks beautifully too. I
balanced it, it was a bit tail heavy, but it seems to do great, it
doesn't waver in the wind when the rotor is turning hard, it

"I got Terry's 4 blade set and his yaw mount.
These homebrewed windgens are fun to build and play
with cause there very simple and straight forward every single piece
you can get to see what's there and all. Building mine was absolutely
never a headache like some projects can turn into, it was
relaxing all the way.
Terry answered endless questions for me on the phone
I'm looking even more forward to building my next one than I was for this 1st one."
