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.

KidWind Blade Design Bulk Consumables Pack

This product contains the major consumable materials used for wind turbine blade design experiments. This pack features two blade-making materials: balsa wood and corrugated plastic sheets.

Dowels are included for attaching your blades to the hub.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do I attach my blades to the dowels?

    We recommend hot glue (glue gun). Other types of glue or duct tape may also work.

  • What is the best way to cut balsa wood?

    The balsa tends to split and break if you use scissors. Hobby knives work well. Be very careful using a hobby knife because they are sharp and it's easy to cut yourself. We recommend adult supervision.
