Types of Rotor Kites

up Back to Rotor Kite Information

The definition of `rotor' kite is in itself controversial. It has come to mean any kite which uses or depends on rotation in some manner to fly. The kites are sub-classed into some general categories, basically determined by the direction the axis of rotation is relative to the wind and ground...

Because of the unusal nature of this kite, a huge number of patents have been taken out on this kite. These patents use to be freely available on the net, but now the main web site is more restricted making it harder for people to just take a quick look. I will point to them in any case
