Default The tether system realizes intelligent cable retraction

Until the battery technology is breakthrough and the problems of UAV's endurance are solved, a kind of tethered UAV through external wires is worth paying attention to. Lapped UAVs transmit electric energy to UAVs through photoelectric integrated cables, so that UAVs can stay in the air for a long time without being limited by electric energy. Its structure, size, and materials can be flexibly designed according to application requirements, and it has strong mobility, which can well meet the requirements of some working environments for UAVs to stay in the air for a long time. But because the drone is connected by a cable, some operators will get tangled when the drone is ascending or descending.
Today, a Cirrutitan mooring device has attracted a lot of attention. The main reason is that this device realizes automatic cable retraction and retraction, automatic alignment, and the whole process requires no human intervention.

Is the smart cable controlled by remote control or one-click control?

They are probably running some sort of auxiliary unit. A gas engine of some kind turning a generator to upkeep an array of batteries. Auxiliary power for UAS use has been a topic bouncing around the internet.

The ground unit has a toggle button, and when you turn it on, you can operate the cables on your remote control

My question is: when the drone is going up faster than the cable is going out, won't anyone get pulled down?
