Re: Wind Turbine: possible power supply

I have heard that PMA motors work the best for small wind turbines. Since it spins around a magnet it produces more power with less RPMs.

Re: Wind Turbine: possible power supply

Thank you so much. If I could simplify the set up to something like this(https://youtu.be/AckRAYQ8N48) would it still work? I would still have to program the pi to shut off at a drop off of voltage.

Wind Turbine: possible power supply

Hello Raspberry pi community,

I am trying to make a wind turbine that could possible power my raspberry pi and even charge a battery for later use. I have the fan blade, but I'm stuck on witch motor I should use to get the best power.

Thank you,
Big:D

Re: USB Camera: How to get a live feed?

Thank you for your quick reply. I have tried this, but when I click on the program it will not launch even after a reboot.

USB Camera: How to get a live feed?

Hello, I am new to Raspberry Pi forums so I am sorry if this is in the wrong spot. I was just wondering if there was a way to get the live feed from a USB camera and just see it on the RPI as a tab instead of a live feed on the internet. I am using a Raspberry pi 3B and vnc viewer to access it. Than...

Re: Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

I have made sure the cables are connected to the right gpio pins on both the pi and the screen. When I tried supplying the screen and he pi with power the pi seems to boot fine but the screen becomes very hot and it smells like it might be burning.

I unattached the hdmi cable and the screen comes on but it is white with vertical grey lines.

Re: Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

I have officially reinstalled rasbian on my pi and I have completely set it up. When I plug in the screen I still get the same result. The red light goes out and a lighting bolt appears on the hdmi screen I have hooked up.

Re: Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

Got it. I am currently ordering a micro sd card on Amazon. I will test the new rasbian soon.

Re: Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

I will try this tonight. Thanks. I'm not sure if it is the problem though because the green light comes on which means it registers the sd card. I have also accessed my pi via hdmi and it worked fine.

Re: Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

Thank you. :D I have tried this on multiple occasions already and found that I needed a new cable. So I have a new cable and I have re-seated it multiple times. I don't think the cable is a problem anymore. Could the screen need a firmware update or something of the sort?

Raspberry Pi 7inch Touchscreen not working

Hello, I have recently purchased a raspberry pi 7inch touchscreen. It was working fine yesterday but today when I plug it in it shows grey-black lines then it goes completely black. The red power light does not come on when the pi is plugged into the screen. I have my pi wired via GPIO pins and a DS...
