At this point in my project, I have acquired the blades and materials for a potential mount. I am going to head to McGuckins later today to pick up material for the wind vane and arbor. I am also browsing online to find a suitable motor that I can purchase by the end of this week. I hope to start assembling the unit within the next 10 days, so I can begin to troubleshoot the various problems I may run into. Also, if anybody has experience with the electronic portion of wind turbines (connecting it to batteries, etc.) please let me know because I lack experience in this area.
