I haven't blogged much lately. Instead I've been doing heaps of reading... reading about kite aerial photography. About radio controled camera cradles and pivacat suspension systems; parafoil lifting kites and special solid wooden reels needed to hold the 300lb braided line it will all eventually dangle from.
I've found that most of this equipment I will need to build myself. The kite should be easy enough. There are plenty of plans out there and the sewing is pretty straight forward. The reel, line, and pivacat shouldn't present too much of a problem either. But the radio controled camera cradle is giving me nightmares. Its going to be interesting (and probably expensive) putting one of these together!
After all this reading I think KAP will definately be worth the effort. I think this is a project that may keep me busy well into the winter!
