    Hi, I wanted to share my first windmill project with you all. So here is my build-log:

    The wind turbine will be powered by an F&P Smartdrive motor. This generator will be capable of producing 500-600 watts max at peak. Average generation in 12-16 MPH wind should produce between 200-300 watts. (from what I understand)

    Here is a picture of the stator after I rewired the coils for my 12V system

    This is the testing bracket I whipped up. As you notice, I am using a Clutch Disk to secure the hub to the shaft

    I decided to buy a custom made pivot as pictured below

    I am now picking up a set of Windy Nation's blades. I will post more pics when were completed
