From skywindpower.com: A simulated take off in a powered-via-the-tether mode is shown where the rotors are nearly parallel to the ground. Then the FEG is seen transitioning to the nose up position that it will maintain during the electrical power generation mode in which persistent winds provide the only power that spins the rotors. Each rotor is attached to a generator. Next, electrical power flow is illustrated as light traveling down the tether from the remote restricted airspace and over imaginary power lines to light a distant city.
