I don't know about you guys, but seeing Team Joker's Snoopy Sloop cast off hasn't half given me a kick up the arse to actually order the components and get this navigation procedure completed! I get paid tomorrow so I'll order them both and get the navigation procedure started over Xmas.

I know the feeling, I may have to divert some funds towards Auton. Just don't tell the girlfriend that the new house fund may be a little less!

I hear you both...

A machinist friend of mine is working on (with CNC equipment) the Savonius/genrator axle/magnetic clutch and containment rig (for free :D ).

Here's the CAD 3D (to dimensions) of the rotor that he's working from:

The lower, left vane post, all by its lonesome, and the misplaced adjacent vane are errors he has since corrected (although neither error would effect the axle machining).

Oh yeah, if we need anything modeled, I can do some stuff with Pro-E. I've design a case for my bench-bound RPi to protect it. I've just gotta sort out the G-code and materials before I can CNC it at work.

Sorry, I should've mentioned this previously.
