Well had an interesting experieince with a wind generator I bought from ebay from ilovexiaoya. First thing I noticed was that the shaft was lose in the bearings – which is very bad news, I had to wait for the wind speed to exceed 11ms for it to start turning, when it did turn it accelerated then spun itself out of the direction of the wind
Now that the bearing have loosed up it spins in > 8 ms but that is quite a strong breeze and really not acceptable, the miss aligned shaft causes it to vibrate so much I have tied it off, the nose cone has already worked itself lose.
Currently in talks with ilovexiaoya regarding a refund, he wants me to send it back China at a cost of £100 for a refund of £80….. meaning I would be £200 out of pocket after postage costs!
Don’t buy this item!
