- Porosity change of wings in wing set
- AoA change of wings in wing set
- Fly side-slip
- Over-the-top fly and work wings in down leg. Perhaps
have lifter system at top.
- DS mentioned "eight" ways being explored by KiteGen.
- Twin or double system: One is pulled in by the
power-out system; the in system wing set is morphed for low tension.

not apply to all the short-stroke pumping designs that "recover"
or "reset" by an elastic recovery of a spring and/or lever, and the
like, without reeling. There is "reel" confusion as to what a "yo-yo
method" is. In the past it has been applied very loosely, sometimes to
opposed alternating kites, sometimes almost like a trademark. If what is
meant is only "reel" systems, as Dave Lang defined them in 2004, then
"reel-in phase" specifically applies, but there is still potential for
confusion with all systems that just use reels for launching and
landing, but not for a direct power cycle. Phases called, "retract",
"reset", "recovery" and so on, are clearly more universal.
I have reconsidered the "tow" usage issue, and now think "winch-tow" is
a proper useful descriptor, as long as no confusion is created by just
saying "tow launch", which tends to imply a moving tow vehicle. "Winch
launch" is very clear, and "step-tow" is a special case of usually pure
winch launch, although a tow vehicle could be used.
We are slowly "writing the book" on proper precise AWE nomenclature.
Sorry to all those who despair over such fussiness, but the end result
will be great engineering expressiveness with a few choice words,
