|Variable Height Crosswind AWE Arrays
A key AWE tuning parameter is to modulate flight altitude to match
ideal windspeed. Generally one flies higher in lighter wind & lower in
higher wind, landing as conditions become overblown. Previously circular
anchor fields were described where arched crosswind arrays are belayed
around the compass to match wind direction. Only limited height variation
was possible as an over-tall array is prone to self-interference.
