Default Want very small wind turbine. Know where to buy? Or how to make?

I want a small light weight wind turbine to generate power for a small autopilot in a kite. Are small lightweight wind turbines available? If not, do you have any clues as to how to make one?

If you take a motor that is used for airplanes and spin the shaft will electricity be produced? Any idea how efficient it may be?

Thanks,
Wayne


P.S. If you liked this one, I have plenty more esoteric questions yet to ask.
