Just for fun, what would your kite do in the following scenario:
On a windless day, you're taken a few km up into the sky. Then you're dropped with your kite directly above you, with no horizontal speed.
Assuming you can survive the altitude, and nothing breaks, and you do nothing to turn/steer you kite, what will happen to your kite and you? Will it remain above you like a parachute, and you'll just fall straight downwards? Or will something else happen?
I'll be interested to hear your answers
