I'm glad to see you deriving this thing :)
Casual rain-power generator with no installation work is a nice idea!
but what about the people in suburban places where no open water streams are accessible.
Maybe we could derive a variant of this generator that can be lowered into a constant running sewerstream or beeing put into the down-spouts from big buildings roofs.
Then It only works when its raining.. but power is power and there are places where it rains a lot. (where the monsun rains occur or the city Bergen with 248 rain days per year ;)

We use SHIMANO's hub dynamo Nexus DH-2N30J as generator.
"hydropw1.dxf" is its assembly 3d model.
"helix01-r3.stl" is its helix-shaped screw section only. Our helix-shaped screw section is made for 3D printers, made by nylon.
"hydropw1_electric_circuits1.bmp" is a 2D electric circuits drawing file(bitmap), such as 5V USB-OUTPUT and 100V AC-OUTPUT on Flickr.: flickr.com/photos/83659424@N02/8667101710/
The other parts are made by stainless steel.
Also you colud see the video that we did the first field-test of "hydropw1" on flickr - URL: flickr.com/photos/83659424@N02/8004530060/
The size of "hydropw1" is 0.25m in width, 0.30m in height, 0.3m in depth.
And, we use SHIMANO's hub-dynamo as power generator, so its power output is 3.0watt maximum, according to their catalog.
