Do you know which software could do this? Also learning curve? I expect you are thinking about «grashopper»?
There have been animations published of optimised AWES flight loops
(I think from Freiburg and others)
highlighting the changing lift & drag force regime as parameters like wind speed and tether length change.
Yeah I reckon it wouldn’t be too hard to do it in grasshopper too. Hmmmmm maybe I’ll get time one day.
