7 m2 NPW on Crosswind-Cableway (AWE Encampment notes)
For many years stunt-kite fliers have
preformed an amusing trick of flying a kite via an upwind anchor equipped
with a pulley or ring. This doubles back the lines to put the flier under
the kite to allow a sort of close dance. In AWE, we have discovered this
rig enables the flier to self-launch and land long-lined, with various
advantages. At the kitefarm two days ago, we successfully flew a 7m2 NASA
Power Wing back and forth along our crosswind cableway in dog-stake mode,
with both launch and flight happening from the same point.
Comment and development of this topic will be occurring here.

(Legal Note: Open AWE CC sharing and claims rest on "artist's moral rights", under the Berne Convention. Inventing is a true creative Art, by long tradition. The intent in Open AWE is to make the widely emerging new form of CC IP voluntarily accepted and fairly valued, as AWE's professional best-practice standard. Comments invited.)

so now we are integrated with the latest standard cooperative IP model, but "coolIP" remains a nice shorthand.
