Main Question or Discussion Point

And how would I do all the math for how much HP I would need to turn it based on its weight etc.?

Would I just use a normal 3 wave alt for high RPMs? Like roughly.... 10-15000rpms

How about asking more specific questions in regard to designs?

The power required will be a function of the loads applied. How much power are you expecting from it? The power input will have to be at least that plus parasitic loads like friction and rotor windage.
