Engineering


Electronics Zapp. Soldering. PCBs… all that stuff… Blade design The torque, the rps, the airfoils… Manufacturing Making it a reality! CAD & Simulation Make it virtually before building it. Generators & Gearing Go get that power! Electrifying! Lifters / Pilot kites Get the Lift! Lifting things. That boulder just outside of geostat orbit goes here. Flight Control As if anything was under control. Power Transmission conductive tethers, tethers for winching systems, rope-drives, rotating shafts, and more Crosswind Kites / Planes The kites that go wooooooooosh, wooooooooooooosh, wooooooooooosh. (Please someone write decent category descriptions!) Math & Physics The purest of sciences go here. System Design Looking at the structure of whole systems.
