Hey vnicolet, I used the stepper as you can get high voltage for low RPM and this lends itself to the relatively low turbine speed approx 600RPM. I didn't really want to design a multi stage gearbox, to make it work smoothly would need many small bearings.

But please by all means give it ago and let me know how you get on! :)

Cheers Dan
