Thanks Sean and Demonknight….
Demon your catapult idea got me thinking ….
A person could do something like this setup on the back of a bus or in my case back of my little house section on our bus…
Basically the main pole would sit in a bracket that would allow it to pivot into an upright position or pivot downward.
The main (larger pole) would have a smaller diameter pole inside it and both poles would have holes drilled through them which would allow a person to run a heavy-duty clevis pin through the pipe setup .(for making height adjustments )
To setup the wind generator (or take it down), you’d pivot the pole setup downward ….pull the inside pole out to where you want , pop in a clevis pin to hold it in place ….install the wind generator on the pole and push the pole up till it slips into the holding bracket , then to secure it, put a pin through that.
You could winch the pole setup into an upright position if you wanted to get fancy about it.
To make life easy I would have the wire running up through the center of the inner pole and use Butt connectors or something similar which you’d use for connecting and disconnecting the wind generators output wires.
I know you want to be careful not to distort the Carbon Fiber Composite Blades on the Air-X , but at the same time I hate the idea of dicking around and pulling the blades off the wind generator for storing it away and then having to put it back together when you want to use it.
So I’ve been thinking for a long time about some way to lower the generator (blades facing to the rear ) and have it sit into some sort of bracket that would allow you to keep the wind genny up there when driving…..
Sean question for you…..( great pics by the way)
Why do you disconnect your solar modules when running your Air-X?
