Propeller Testing

Because every set of handmade propellers is different and because there are probably substantial differences between each homemade generator, both as to performance and weight, the propellers and the completed system need to be tested and the associated tail vane customized so that the unit will feather (turn out of the wind) at its optimal performance speed.

A wind tunnel would be one solution for testing but this is another very clever one from Force Field. In the future I hope to mount ours on a Smokemobile - but that is another story, found elsewhere among our web pages.
