Brian, I just see a short video in the second post, is there a link I missed to more information?
Good question my friend. I am taking some time to publish open source guidelines for the designs, and the motivation for the designs.
More details of the open source design sets are being added to the internet all the time by myself and other contributors.
For a working design document that I am actively writing and edited today, please read my Medium.com article which is an open source design document titled Electricity for All.

Betz Arrows automatically regulate air speed & direction for power generating flight near Betz Limit.
Phases of Power Generation
Airborne wind turbines with ground based generators produce electricity through a long generating phase, which is then followed by a short cable retraction phase in which a small amount of power is consumed. Consistent electricity for the village can be provided by utilizing the internal battery pack of the electric vehicle or a pumped hydro generator.
During electricity generation, the Power Drone aircraft pulls on the tether line and the Electric Vehicle produces electricity for the village, vehicle battery pack, pumped hydro water pump, and drinking water filtration systems. The vehicle “thinks” it is driving forward and downhill, and generates electricity using regenerative braking, when in fact it is stationary.
During cable retraction, the Power Drone aircraft descends rapidly and the Electric Vehicle consumes a small amount of power from its internal battery pack. During this time, the village is powered using the pumped hydro generator and vehicle battery pack. The vehicle “thinks” it is driving in reverse, when in fact it is stationary.
Attached is a proposal document inspired by the successful deployment programs of IDE Global. Please let me know your thoughts!
