    There are several threads on this forum about wings and the commercial applications of kites and sails. Oracle has taken the lead in recycling carbon fiber including recycling one of Larry Ellisons ocean racers-Sayonara.

    Now that is what I call change of market. First computer databases and software. Now recycling. I Holland we say: Schoenmaker blijf bij je leest. translated:

    I found on google what I was looking for:

    They're not changing their business-just participating in an effort to recycle carbon fiber and such...

    Sorry, I don't understand how you're using the word "actual"?

    Think he's asking who is this Marchaj turkey? Never heard of him.

    The article says the 10 segmented wing provides most power. And that was 10 years ago. I think it's actual. Omly how to produce it and test it is a problem.
    Perhaps I'll talk to my professor about this. I have an idea on the test facility, 30 meters long but it's going to cost a bundle. effective in 36th cup. Special reduction for team UK.

    The conotation of this is crazy.
    What are the design rules for 36th cup? We want to built a testing facility for the 10th segmented wings on 1:1 scale. Secretly and only for team UK.
