Just some back in from testing.

I sewed a new Daisy without the back end parachute kite and ran it with a torque ladder through my falco e-bike wheel.

It made Power. OK only a wee bit so far. I have a new challenge of making enough for my mum to enjoy a cup of kite powered tea.

I May mix the two spinning kites together now as the back end one had advantages.
