Designing a 100W Tensile Rotary Power Transmission based Airborne Wind Energy System. Part 4: Make!

Dear AWE crowd,

I published Part 4

This video shows me making most of the “not of the shelf” parts for the base station.

The design is published under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License and can be found here:

Wait a minute! What about part 3??? Well, Part 3 will explain how we got from the different tests to this design. I still have to make up a couple of reasons so part 3 will take a bit longer to produce :wink:

But if this video gets three likes before the lock down is over I will make it, promise!

Also: I am publishing these videos hoping that somebody smarter than me will make their own version of this system and improve the design. If you want to give it a try go ahead, it’s easy…

…if you have a nice workshop like me :slight_smile: If you don’t, just let me know. I am happy to make the missing parts for you.


PD: If you missed it, Part 2 can be found here.


Very Like!
So much bigger than a banana!!
