Free-flight AWES for travel by kite systems.
|UWP: About when did you make the drawing AeroKite.GIF?
AP: The drawing was just a theoretical speculation based on the KiteGen Stem functioning concepts. I got the idea the 4th February 2011 and I wrote it in this tread:
The thread translation is this: "I stimulate your imagination and creativity more for fun and for practical applications (even though I do not deny that some practical ideas already came to my mind ...): Since the KiteGen produces high forces with a predominant vertical component, I wondered if these vertical components may even overcome the weight force of the flight control components.... in that case, it might be possible to make a flying object that uses controlled kite to fly? An AeroKite...."
Andrea Papini of Italy conceives a version: AeroKite.
UWP: About when did you personally first turn attention to kite
AP: In 2006 I read an article about KiteGen for the first time and I thought "that's a really good idea", but only on 2010 I got in touch with Massimo Ippolito and started to study the project and to support it.
