My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

Description Datasheet

KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment Kit Nacelle

This kit contains the unassembled parts of the Advanced Turbine Nacelle. Build your own wind turbine and experiment with wind power.

This kit enables a number of advanced experiments, especially with our generator module, the GenPack. Try different gear ratios, blade designs, generators, and more in a creative, hands-on inquiry into wind energy science. This nacelle also converts for conducting weightlifting experiments, making it a great option for studying mechanical and electrical energy.

Once built, this nacelle will mount on our wind turbine tower or on a standard 1-inch PVC pipe.

You Can:

  • Build blades and conduct experiments
  • Get higher power output than with the Basic Nacelle so you can power more loads.
  • Build your own nacelle (head) for wind turbine experiments.
  • Perform gear ratio experiments.


  • Understanding clean energy
  • Exploring energy transformations
  • Understanding circuits, electricity, and magnetism
  • Understanding the relationship between energy and forces
  • Exploring forces and motion
  • Understanding angles
  • Exploring concepts of lift, drag, and torque
  • Developing and using physical models
  • Understanding differences between energy and power
  • Designing controlled experiments
  • Optimizing designs
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
Frequently Asked Questions
  • How many blades can I build?

    The hub has 12 holes, so you can experiment with up to 12 blades (2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 work well).

  • What is the gear ratio of the gear box?

    This kit has multiple gears, allowing 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, or direct drive configurations.

  • How can I build a simple PVC pipe tower for my wind turbine?

    Check out KidWind's Basic Wind Experiment Kit Manual for instructions on building the PVC tower.
