Blade design The torque, the rps, the airfoils… Crosswind Kites / Planes The kites that go wooooooooosh, wooooooooooooosh, wooooooooooosh.<br> (Please someone write decent category descriptions!) 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. Generators & Gearing Go get that power! Electrifying! System Design Looking at the structure of whole systems. Electronics Zapp. Soldering. PCBs… all that stuff… CAD & Simulation Make it virtually before building it. Manufacturing Making it a reality! Power Transmission conductive tethers, tethers for winching systems, rope-drives, rotating shafts, and more Math & Physics The purest of sciences go here.
