That is an excellent question! We are working hard to make sure it does NOT fly in the 70 mph winds that sometimes sweep through the Playa at Burning Man. The wings will be horizontal turbines. As the wind flies across the turbines, we will harvest electricity from the force. The ShamanCycle will only APPEAR to be flying across the desert...floating on the roof of our amazing bike-car...HOWEVER the Remote Controlled ShamanCycle Toy (500 dollar level donation) WILL fly! We will be launching these amazing toys off the roof of our ShamanCycle! Coooooool! I'm so excited! Thank you to members of Curious Forge for figuring out the hard math behind the amazing mechanical engineering that rocks the ShamanCycle!
