Any Experience with, or Reviews of AirMov 750W Wind Generator ?

Looking to install a new wind generator on Kuan Yin - a 32-foot Tahitiana.

Does anyone have any experience, reviews or comments about the AirMov 750W Wind Generator

Yes, it is made in China and some Made in China products are garbage, as we all know. However, the Chinese are installing the largest amount of wind capacity in the world right now - could be that this AirMov is not a cheap, noisy knock-off but just as good for a lot less money. After all, an awful lot of brand name electronics are now Made in China and seem to work fine.

Comments welcome.

I would be skeptical of the toggle switch and other electrical swithces exposed at the bottom of the unit, not very weather-proof.

This look like a cheap knock of the AirX system to me...

Excepting eBay ads, there doesn’t seem to be much information about AirMov wind turbines. I'd put this item in the “suspect” Chinese category, until proven otherwise.

With a dragon up your mast, where would you mount this thing?
