My final wind turbine !

Hello everyone,
Dedicated to froze ;D

I thought i rushed a bit, i based my final concept as shown on the other thread on the evaluations of my prototypes
I created both a VAWT (vertical axis wind turbine) and a HAWT (horizontal axis wind turbine) prototypes and here are the vids !

VAWT prototype -

The VAWT failed miserably lol

HAWT prototype -

I concluded that the final design would be HAWT oriented however would use a rib structure to create the wings as done in the VAWT prototype, this was to create the tear drop shape (needed for areodynamics) and to make it lighter whilst retaining its structure, and as shown this is the previous video in the other thread (shown belown) that was basically the structure

Dont want to bore you too much, but i used ora-cover to cover the rib structure, made a shaft which was tubing and a pin so it could direct itself towards the wind and the circuit etc etc etc lol and wala !

And this is it working using a bouncy castle start up ! yes a BOUNCY CASTLE START UP ! Very Happy enjoy ~

only created max 1.7v :/

anyways i just did my presentation today and it went spectacular and the industrial ppl from companies said i should try get sponsorship and develope my prototype so never know could be seein ma wind turbines round the world ! lol was sooooo awesome got soo much praise ahhh i wont boast too much soo ill let it be Razz ~
