Engineering


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