I want to build an awes. Just for fun. Goals:
- charge a phone.
- be cheap
- small size when stored.
- Single skin lifter
- bicycle generator (or similar)
- line with wire
- ground anchor
- charge controller
Maybe some higher winds can be used. Probably depends on power loss in light wire.
I’ve got a few carbon rods lying around for the vane lever and the turbine. Blades will either be rigid 3d printed or just fabric in a frame.
Not planning to calculate much. Just make it and see if it works. Might take some time until I get around to it.
