I just bought one, looks to be viable. I hope I can get it to fit under the cowl, though.

No link or URL. Google search draws a blank on this one. A guy in Australia has several more, he didn't elaborate on how many or why he has a quantity. Strikes me as a failed venture, whether the componants are good or not. I'll post a pic of the packaging and parts shortly...........Dave

RC generators have been around for quite awhile. They typically use a "Hall Effect" ring on a 'ring' mounted to the front shaft of the engine.

They generate enough juice to power onboard lighting systems and still keep the flight pack charged continuously.
