Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much we love
our two firebirds. Wasted our money on solar panels and just
should have bought 4 more windmills from you. On long winter
nights they are a life saver for us as we live way off the grid.
Makes massive power in wind storms, last night the pair were
making over 2400 Watts for 16 hours straight from your impressive
machines. Makes me happy now when wind blows at last looking
forward to wind. Not so much fun before as we are having now.
Gas gennys work great when wind is dead. Solar useless up here.
Great product, you made a believer out of us. Rex Theo????
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR BLADE EXTENSIONS!
MAKING POWER IN 2 MPH WIND ZONE WITH YOUR
AMAZING, NEVER STOPS SPINNING DAY OR NIGHT
Hi! No doubt you've heard this many times
but these blades are fantastic!
installed them on a PMDC 90v Pacific Scientific @ 1750 rpm 1/8
hp..generating 12-16 vdc 1n nom 6-10 mph winds @6-9A! ...a perfect
ballanced compliment to our solar array through a Coleman 80A
divertion charge controller...Thank You! they're every thing
NICE HAWK LETTER 11-14-04
"I order a Hawk 12
volt a few months back and it works really well for us up here.
We live on a small island off of the cost of Alaska and man a
weather and repeater station. It blows between 30 to 68 MPH day
and night out here. This little Hawk turbine finally did what
my 10,000 watts of solar panels could not do for me in the cloudy
and practically sunless northern winters of Alaska. We only run
the generator about half of the time now since we got the Hawk.
Its hard to believe that this little 20 lb. turbine can charge
my 2600 lb. battery in under 6 hours. This is a fantastic little
turbine you make. Never had to de-ice it once. Spins like a bat
out of Hell. I also treated the blades with silicon oil, a little
trick we northerner's use to keep windows clean and easy to de-ice.
I have tried other turbines over the years but they either broke
in the first few days or they went into self protection mode
from the extreme winds effectively stalling the blades and by
that time it was all over anyhow. The stalled blades picked up
so much snow and ice that the towers folded days later in the
gale force winds. You have a real winner here especially for
people in places like me. Thank your engineering team from me
personally. Can you sell me a can of that green varnish please
since I see some rust forming since I put it up unpainted (My
Please put it on the same credit card number I faxed a few months
ago? Just ship it UPS Blue label to the same Anchorage address
if you please. It will find its way out here sooner or later.
My sincerest thanks go out to you for building this great little
I thought I would drop you a line and let you know about the
turbine I ordered from you, it was to replace a southwest wind
power windseeker 503, because it continually trashed the blades,
I have gone through three of their sets of blades, and now they
stopped making and servicing them. As I was assembling the one
I received from you the windseeker was on the bench right next
to it, and just for the heck of it I thought your hub and blades
might go on the windseeker, which it did, I remounted the wind
seeker with your hub and six blades and never saw it do such
a good job, for nine years I have been hiding from this thing,
and now I can stand right underneath it, your advertisement on
your web site is 100% truthful, your blades turn with very little
wind, and they withstand very high winds, and make very little
noise, and virtually no vibration. I would recommend your blades
to anybody that wishes to improve their current Wind Chargers.
I haven't had a chance to mount your wind turbine yet as I am
waiting on another set of blades. And if anybody wants to know
about your customer service, I would highly recommend them to
you, you always answer your e-mails and are very helpful.
NICE WIND FARM

Very informative site. I'm looking into building my own wind
generator and have had some experience working with
carbon fiber in the boating industry. So I thought I might make
some blades myself, but after seeing your blades I will
probably just buy from you and skip the mess.
My biggest problem right now is that Im unemployed so cash is
a problem (hence the do-it-yourself notion). I will build
the alternator myself, but the blades you have will work perfectly
for what I have in mind. I'm going to take my guitar
right now, and get out on that street corner and scrape up some
pennies (LOL). Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for
doing something to empower the average guy to get off the grid.

The jet stream finally lowered over western Wyoming &
we had high winds for the past 12 hours/50 MPH + gusts.
The Hornet/wind turbine worked extremely well & I was very
pleased with its performance! I believe the alternator
loosened up & it starts at a lower wind speed, now.
Keep working on a low wind speed wind turbine for wind zones
1-2. I think the market is there much more than the
moderate to high wind speed alternators.
Will send pics of my installation of the Hornet.
Keep up the good design work of the Hornet.
Thanks for your help.

I have two of these and working
great since 2006, Thanks for a great product!

MESSAGE FROM A VERY HAPPY BUYER:
Item: 60" 403 Wind Turbine Generator Blades Rotor airx AIR-X
(6012033722) This message was sent after the listing closed.
in_things is the winner.
Thanks! The blades are dealing with 35 mph winds and 45 mph gusts
as im typing this. Works good and is quiter then orig. Can you
give me feed back please?

hello, I've got a 4 yr. old air403....they
said almost "silent operation"... bull, my neighbors
hate me..it sounds like a huge
weed whipper or, with high winds... it cuts
out too quickly making a big roar...
can I replace the blades with yours? which

I noticed awhile back u had just a blade
set for one of these. Will you
sell a blade hub combo? btw The pma's I got from u 2 years ago
are still up
and rockin, They have seen some crazy winds 80+ in storms. Also
malfuctions either. Just occasionally having to pick them up
1/4 mile away
after tower failures, LOL! Let me know when u get a chance.
I have an Air X 403 and have replaced the
controller inside four times now.
I have a switch that shorts the turbine but it still burns up
the coil after
50 MPH winds was wondering if maybe there is a better way.
I'm done fixing that junky AirX every time
it blows over 50 mph. I live on Martha's
Vineyard and it's mounted on a raft in the water. It's gusting
over 40 as I write this
email so I will probably blow out the fifth $150.00 control board
by the end of today.
Do you have something to help me out?
Spinning does NOT equal power!
are many blades on the market that can spin in any tiny little
BUT spinning SLOW will NEVER give you high charging amperage!!
coupled to our LOW cogging - easy turning PMA's will spin
than the fat wind turbine blades.
BE FOOLED BY BLADES THAT SLOWLY SPIN AROUND
TIME BUT NEVER "TAKE OFF" into the ultra high RPM range.
a direct drive PMA speed is way more important!
Works great in salt water with the Marine coating

Just a update on my turbine.
Its putting six amps in very mild wind and I
mean mild. My miss&%& wind never did this at all. Ever.
I have sold it. You
information and email response made it happen. I'm so happy with
product. Can't wait for a good wind. I'm tree bound and it still
power. Just wanted to say thank you. Amy
