Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Very elaborate and it looks like a lot of work went into it. Certainly the person would need to set the shutter speed to some very fast shutter speed. The issue with a stunt kite is that the photo frame is not usually going to be oriented with the ground. But that should be pretty easy to correct.

Well, seeing the RC box next to the kite and all the servos to control the inscribed square frames that pivot within eachother, I guess the owner can use the RC to orient the camera in the direction s/he wants to.
However, I don't know why one would want so much control when you cannot see from the ground what the camera is actually being framed upon...

I was going to mention that but then thought that might not be the case and the RC was only to snap the photo. But now that you mention it, it does seem like the angle can be adjusted. I don't see any real need to control this via RC.

Does anyone use FPV (First Person View) That would make an interesting film, maybe.

HH and others,

This could easily be adapted to having some sort of ground based image targeting using FPV stuff: A camera $30-$100, video TX/VX about $100-200, viewer= goggles $150+/monitor $70+.

Then go a 3 axis brushless gimbal, $600.00 +/-, some RC stuff and you're ready to really roll Smiley
