Tried it today using a 2206 Drone motor and a custom made shaft to fit the rotor and it was pumping water just fine :) Nice model

exactly what i was searching for, trying to create a wind driven pond pump since a while know, but so far i havent had much success. Which Rotor do you plan to use? i Think with this Kind of Pump you would need a Darrieus Rotor to produce enough speed.... Too bad Darrieus have so little torque.... I´m also thinking about using a simple Archimedes Screw.

what are you pumping with this? awesome you are running off wind turbine, can i have more info on project?

I promise that I will publish it when I get it to work.

Awesome let me know when you do! I tried to make a few things when in high school but nothing ever happened with them

I am actually trying to drive the pump with a wind turbine, so I am not really using a motor. Not much success so far though...

are you using the half inch vinal tube as an air intake to push the fan?

The vinyl tube is the output of the pump and will carry liquid. In my use case, I have a small wind turbine that is mechanically connected to the rotor of the pump. For this connection I am using the sample shaft (as provided in the downloaded file set). You can see the (orange) shaft in the picture. That is how you drive it.
