    The guy looks weirdly like a living, moving, Ken Doll. Anyway: I do appreciate the handy-crafty nature of making this, but really, just to charge an old 12v car battery? There are better home projects to do.

    So...what happens when the wind direction changes? The electrical connections are only going to go so far. If the head goes 360º once or twice, something is going to have to give. Either it will end up out of the wind or break the wires. It needs a cheap brush system to transfer the power.
