I need to fit a charging system to my Auster and was wondering if anyone has a wind driven alternator / generator, The type that mounts under the fuse between the gear lying around unused which I could buy off you. The Auster does not have a ring gear, fan belt or such other fittings so one has to find alternate ways of charging the batteries.
Please reply or call Colin on 083 762 0580.

Thanks Andriek. That is sort of what I am looking for but need not be new or quite as powerful. Dont know that I would want to spend quite as much as they want for this one as it is a warbird and only used week-ends and for casual flying. Just looking to see what is out there for now and then I will decide if I should buy something new or not.

Thanks guys. I have looked into all of those but was hoping to get something second hand and / or older since I have a warbird.
