just saying recomendation

just like a deicing coil on your car window it heats up and melts the ice, "ok so what" well i know the blades can be stopped in excessive wind ect so why not just build a windshield wiper with a heating coil on it that travels down the blade and back melting the ice in a autonomous way you should be able to recover your build costs in labor saved a small bot with a heating coil attached to the hub with a power line that extends with it as it travels the length of each blade this should reduce the need for expensive coatings however this will lead to slight temperature flux and ware on the blades but more then likely less then the hit from the ice itself this could make the icing worse but its something to be tested and at least looked into
