So if you had an airborne generator like shown in the first post and you had a long extension cord attached to your buggy modified so it is powered by an electric motor would it still count as kite buggy riding? How about if you just charged a battery powered by the airborne kite device and used the battery to power a motor to drive your kite buggy?

Coyotes? Is that what they're calling it now?
Too much weather, with soft ground underneath is our problem in Raleigh.
So Randy, by extension, under the potential energy rule you suggest, my truck is dinosaur powered?

Kush only in Canada. I laugh at you sir.

I saw a red one on the bay awhile back, asked the internet what it knew about the thing.
Seemed like a new skill set that would be specific to that kite,
All kites are good kites. I've watched the videos, learned about zippers and line changes from the posts and....yup, i guessed right. :o
You are the test pilot.

If the ground would freeze for me maybe I'd try something but it's mud under snow and pretty useless. Poor me. Poor, poor me. My fastest times in a bug we're around last xmas, continuing through February...
I feel the wind coming. :wee:
