Mothra Two Stroke Power Out
The Open IP AWE group already have a huge controllable weathercocking lift kite and a dual stroke direction power generation system tested.
We have described many logical power tapping methods of the lift kite.
With large kites simple control options become interesting
A slight twist on the existing descriptions (we may have briefly said it before?..)
is to site the dual stroke input generator directly at the ground midpoint of where the lift kite feet connect by block and tackle to their belay set. A single rope out from the block and tackle runs through the dual stroke generator and into the block and tackle on the other foot.
As one foot lifts the other drops.
A deforming pull steering input control signal to the kite is magnified on the output foot tether line.
A bit like a transistor with the air as the supply voltage

(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.)
