Bethany has decided that instead of a garden cart, she wants a Segway.

She seems to think the transaxle assembly from the wheelchair would work well as a Segway base.  I’m pretty sure she doesn’t understand the complexity of gyroscopes and motor controllers.  Neither do I, for that matter.  I think we’ll stick with the wind turbine and garden cart.

I haven’t been able to determine the amps the motor is intended to draw so I don’t know what kind of output I can expect from the turbine, or what size and type of blades to make.  I sent emails to both the scooter manufacturer and the motor manufacturer.  Hopefully they’ll reach somebody who will take the time to look up a 12-year-old scooter for me.
