    If a mothra kite arch is made single skin so that sails are set over loadpaths. If you mount the 2 arch feet along an two pivoting arms, with the front line

      If you mount the 2 arch feet along an two pivoting arms, with the front
      line set nearest the pivot and the back most line set near the "hand"
      ...

      When the arch is place in a 2 way flow zone... tidal or a valley
      It may even be able to invert whilst flying to reorient itself with the
      change in current.
      especially so when it's made bouyant.

      An invertable arch has been covered by us, especially in the context of gap winds that typically breathe both ways. Arch inversion is quite feasible, and is

        An invertable arch has been covered by us, especially in the context of gap winds that typically "breathe" both ways. Arch inversion is quite feasible, and is already seen in common sleds (arch on a bridle) which often invert during upsets, but continue to fly.
