I was under the impression that one of the videos Steve showed us at the Wet & Wildwood cookout was taken from a Rev kite. I have no idea of the origin of that video or the hardware used, but it was an interesting view of the other team kites. I would imagine it would be much easier to mount a camera system under a single line kite, but it would be much cooler to have it on a steerable kite. It would probably have to be a very small camera to avoid destroying the control of the Rev.
Interesting challenge to ponder. It reminded me of the video shot by an R/C airplane at the Black Forest Star Party in 2005, viewable in low or high resolution from
Several of my fellow stargazers were there when the pilot launched his electric plane and videoed the campground and telescopes below. I have been contemplating trying the same thing eventually with one of my R/C planes. Doing it from a controllable kite might also be interesting.
The KAP rig was sent up on a SLK. I will figure out the best way to do shots from the Rev. I do have a few ideas, but until I work the bugs out, that's all they are.
It was definitely too windy for a standard sail!
