So, I have managed to wrangle this project as a university project! I have spent the semester researching blade design, building components, and assembling the turbine. I will do a proper update with all my documentation and the whole design and build process once I am done with Uni for the year, but for the time being, check out the turbine!
And here is a cool video of the rotor picking up some wind!
Stay tuned for a proper update! I promise it's coming!
