Mothra-tech Easy Giant Sewing Method
From current Mothra development:
A giant tarp must be backed up with a rope loadpath net to make a proper giant kite. The rope acts as the primary load structure, and has a ripstop function. The problem is that a loose loadpath net can shift around and is more prone to fouling.
The solution is "giant sewing", where the tarp is first pierced and grommeted in a large suitable pattern. The rope loadpaths are then threaded over-and-under through the grommets, just like "giant sewing". This method is simple, easy, and fast, even in the field; and the kite is neatly finished.
Draw-lines for trim and furling similarly run in grommets.
Comment and development of this topic will be occurring here.
