Hey guys! Me again!I'm here on behalf of a Mechanical Engineering Project that requires a mechanism to be built that will launch a kite in low winds so that it will be shot up to 50m where the better winds are. I'm back with another few questions to ask all of you. Any help is appreciated!1. How do you normally launch your kites? Besides tugging and running backwards?2.

What's the weight of your kite along with the photography rigging?5. What types of kite do you
Hello Everyone! I'm currently directing a documentary about the development of airborne wind energy (kite energy) entitled AWE. Here's the link: http://www.awedocumentary.org We launched a kickstarter to help us complete the project and would love to be more involved with the KiteLife community. Please help contribute to the project and help spread the word! Along with showing the current evolution of kite energy, we are delving into the history of the development of technology that the kite has brought about. Any comments or input would also be greatly appreciated! Also, here's a quick descr
