Yet another new wind turbine!

The Chinese Navitron was not a great success. My neighbour complained about the noise and I was worried about the 35kg weight of the turbine damaging something if it toppled my 2" mast. It did, however, give a very good output even at low wind speeds and so is excellent value if noise is not an issue.

I have now purchased a Samrey Wren from Martin at Solarwind and I am very pleased with it. It weighs less than 5kg and so I have been able to double my mast height in order to catch more wind.
