    Hi Anne, You should be able to use this motor for a wind generator project. We have used the Low Inertia Solar Motor - 1820 RPM (code 2546) in a similar project we have run using the BBC micro:bit https://www.kitronik.co.uk/blog/experiment-7-wind-power/

Question:

could this motor be used in reverse to produce power like a dynamo? if so would it be enough to light a low voltage MES bulb?

    Hi, it's not really well suited to being used as a dynamo. You'd get a tiny little bit of power out but the voltage would be very unstable and I doubt it would be much use for powering anything.You'd also have to spin it very very fast as it's a low torque high speed motor.
