   Xmork make a lot of different turbines,
                                    Every 6 months a new company springs up and sticks their label on them.There was a canadian company selling them about 3 years ago and calling them the french translation for "Bird".
      The lump is long and narrow,so the blades have extra leverage on the stator and you dont want that.However inside that turbine is surprisingly well made,I am not clued up on the controllers they are different to mine.If I ever had to fly one,I would downsize the blades and use a 1.5kw dump load.
   From what I have seen of the furling design,it is good,In fact it is a lot better than the Yang-Shen.
     But again,they are just too big for a boat.Try PM Rogerico and ask him for the addy of his supplier.His particular small 600watt(same as mine) had the best of both worlds.
