Spanish windmills going Airborne – Now what, Don Quijote?

I have just uploaded some footage of the first successful test flight of my Torsion based Airborne Wind Energy System after my move to Spain:

Here are some additional pictures:

The system ran very smoothly through a wide range of wind speeds (0-5m/s). I will now scale it up to one that can do the 100 * 100 * 100 challenge (100 minutes of 100 Watts at 100 feet)
