    What a nice bit of kit. Really like that it indicates directly what you should be doing with your aim. Very clever.
    I see you use magnetic attraction to give a "stickiness " to the centre point. Have you also considered experimenting with a pair of magnets each side of an aluminium plate to give non invasive dampingthat is proportional to the acceleration? It is used a lot in simple weighing machines to stop excessive oscillations. On them it is very effective, but they are not getting the wind as a driving force, so you may have to use quite strong ones, fast movement gets lots of damping down to next to no movement gets next to no damping.
    On the thin piano wire spring, am I correct in assuming it is clamped near the gimbal to a stationary portion of the mechanism and gets bent slightly by the turn, or the lift, and that in the straight ahead position it also has a compression spring that is set to provide a small (or whatever) tension to the wire which gets tighter as it turns giving a secondary spring force.
    I saw the AOA Windicator, and then your wonderful ball on a stick :o)
    Yours is more elegantly engineered by a country mile.
