There is another slip line from the pole with a loop on it that you then use to tether the blade as the vane then swings back into the wind without spinning the blades. I'm sure the manual shows this is simple and easy and more reliable than anything electronic.
Thanks Cam. I saw that in the manual.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing. I don't know why. It's a mystery!
