Dead calm so not yet seen to rotate in a breeze, though does when blown at! The idea of this design is ease of build, eg with a big plastic box for a weatherproof version, rather than ultimate efficiency.

The edge-on plank bears the weight on the end of the spindle (with a slot cut-out for the wires) with a pair of metal angle brackets gripping the shaft on the flat and the reverse to stop it twisting: the entire 7kg body above twists relative to the spindle. The PM gen is a brute, nominally capable of 1kW at 48V, though I want only ~10W at 120rpm which looks possible.
