I have a question, how long are the struts which are holding the wing pieces to the shaft?

interesting. what type of a generator could you connect to it?

I connected it to the bicycle dynamo Shimano DH-3N20. Since it is big an cheap one almost every other dynamo should fit as well. The downside is the limited power output of 6 W, the upside is the cheap available accessories (e.g. the electronics to actually charge a smartphone). There are electrical power generators more suitable for this turbine, but those models start at 100€ (e.g. http://elvwis.com/shop/elvwis-adventure-generatoren/55/elvwis-adventure-scheiben-generator-gea-200-al)

cool. thnx. i didnt even know about this brand of generators!
