    Hornet wind turbines are very good, easy to fit, make tower strong and fit inline fuse,
    also fit a dump relay to a battery bank,
    And also allot of the designs of the multi blade was first made by windgenerator.org.uk
    and later copied by, other USA company’s
    The UK dealer is very good to deal with,

    How have you got on with the hornet? Is the “Affordability” worth it and how may blades did you get. Also, I have a low wind speed site, is more blades better for earlier start up?

      hi Mark,

      the hornet belongs to a neighbour. It is still working. I think this is due to the furling tail since it would have been destroyed by the gales without that. It has 8 blades. Having more blades gives more torque for an early start but usually means less speed once it is turning so I am not sure how big an advantage it would be. The logic of having so many very short blades is hard to understand when you can get a lot more torque and power using just 3 longer blades.
      cheers
      Hugh
