Hi Ankit, Thanks dude. Glad you enjoy the project!I recently sold my prototype 3x3 Daisy (a set of rotor-kites with 3 driving kites each on 3 stacked levels) on http://windswept-and-interesting.co.uk I'm developing a manufacturing process. It's still early days, small experimental manufacture. Have a look on the site at the price.
You'll get super small screws out no bother with super small screwdrivers, Just like the comments above but on small scale... The right screw driver for the right head makes a real difference.
Hi Sarah, Thanks! It's great that you're studying Airborne Wind Energy. There was quite a lot of sewing involved. I used ready made ram air kites for this prototype model. I have a couple more descriptor websites for the project. https://hackaday.io/project/1743/instructions and https://www.wevolver.com/wevolver.moderator/airborne-wind-energy/hardware-architecture/description/ If you would prefer, I am starting to make them commercially. I could make a better version of the kite for you and send it. What time scale and budget are you working to? If you mail me ... we can work out what you need or any other help you want on the project. rod dot read attt gmail( dot )com # All the best Rod
Thanks WaalckoI've been flying stacks of these kites together now. Yesterday I flew an re-bridled configuration... (Much flatter wing profiles and less bridling) which really boosted the efficiency. https://youtu.be/Feiyg4zr_Mw
Here's what I think. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0qQxFlXu7t-SzgzaGl1Ym56aXM It's a chapter for the upcoming AWES book from springer. Luckily it's going to become more strictly analysed shortly as a PHD from Strathclyde is looking at the dynamic of tensioned torsional net transfer. You need pull and expansion to transfer torsion over any distance, diameter helps too. A proper explanation doesn't yet exist... If you find it the good folks at someAWE.org would love to hear it.
Absolutely FANTASTIC!! Thank you for sharing your process in such detail. You deserve a medal, $1000000 and a big pat on the back for documenting all that detail. Nicely done Waalcko.
