Hi ogopogo,
I Love This Idea !
I'm up for a challenge !

I've seen those 'Windmill Farms' all over Southern Ontario, on my beer delivery runs. Very impressive, and a good thing. (My opinion)

They are HUGE ! You need to walk close to one to appreciate the 'Power' they are generating ! With low winds the Re#s on the tip speeds must be close to a Pylon Racer before turning !

My 'idea' is to 'Dynamic Soar' in/out of the 'shear' that must be behind/above them.

When, I get over my fears of trying, I'll start building !

Take care,
Have fun,

Re: new challenge for 2012

You guys do realize what one of those wind turbine blades is worth don't ya? Most of the covering on them is fiberglass. Wouldn't take much of a thump to cost a lot of moola, and I ain't talkin' 'bout the plane!

The turbulence off them would be interesting, they have variable pitch on most of the ones I've seen.

Re: new challenge for 2012

ah, no worries Brent. Gonna have an XL Dubro balancer on site just in case. A little bit of resin and we're good to go. Already have the rappelling rig and 24v grinder. I've seen it on tv - nothin' to it.

Dave - I'd like to see what waves radiate out from the blades. I expect travelling vortexes and that could be a blast !!

Oh, I can just picture it! Maybe better have Spiderman on call!

I have a 200' tower right beside my runway, I don't worry about hittin' the tower. The guy wires scare the heck outta me though!
