A flying wind turbine . A network of kites is sewn to make a cheap & low mass energy harvesting device. In operation, a lifting kite holds the turbine head bearing up in the "Kite Power Zone" The Kite Turbine is spun and inflated by the wind. The spinning is transmitted to ground by the tensioned tethers. The tensioned tethers are held separated by rings. The ground station generator is spun by the tethers. The spinning is regulated by a VESC controller on the generator.
