Single-Stake Pilot Station
Video from the Texas AWE Encampment shows the single-stake pilot station being used in a strong wind (gusts well over 20 mph). The 2 1/2 m Pansh Parafoil pulled like hell, way harder than I would have been able to hold without the pilot station. It was like driving an older car without power steering! Single-stake pilot station with double-anchor system allows pilot to fly larger kites in higher winds from a sitting position. MegaBar clips onto a pulley to allow smooth steering.

Also note the Rock the Kite Cooler Boom Box - inspired by the legions of tubers floating down the San Marcos River.

(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.)
