As with the first version of WinDIY, I want to connect the blades to the hub in such a way that it can be easily exchanged. So in the worst case you can quickly repair your turbine. For this purpose I designed a simple hexagonal plug-in socket, which is a bit tight but works in principle. The blade is then secured to the Hub using two screws, that will be completely hidden in the blade.
