G'day Guy's,
I went upto the Clare Valley today and when I got home I looked up the hill only to find my 2hp motor conversion was missing a blade and the 2 remaining were spinning with the tower doing the twist in tune.

so Duly got the tower down to find the bolts were still in where the blade was so looks like wood rot was the cause.

Tomorrow I'll go for a walk and see if I can find the blade with the knowledge with the last blade failure one was found 500 metres away.

Cheers Bryan

Furthest I found a blade once was 200 meters away, upwind!
