I'm not sure what I'm missing here but it SEEMS like you want to build a radio controlled kite that can then use the tether to dynamically soar while attached to the line. Or did I miss something here?

If this is the case you had better look into the penalty due to line drag. Control line speed models are easily capable of amazing speeds but are held back to less than 200 mph due to the drag of the lines.
