Wind turbine generator Kitex

Anyone knew about this project? Maybe 600w its too much for qrp but I think it looks promesing.

What do you think guys?

As far as I can tell, it is still a crowdfunding project and not yet available.
I don’t see it for SOTA but there are certainly many possible uses. And it’s an alternative to a gasoline power pack for fielddays, contests, DXpeditions.
In any case it is going in the right direction for the future.

Looking at the overall setup. It looks very fragile:

A lot of fine elements, wires and bigger parts that are not backpack compatible.
For a fieldday as Armin suggest it could work but for the summit I have my doubts.

It doesn’t look like something you would want to use on a windy day.
