My name is Romain and I am an oceanographer working for the University of Hawaii.
I am looking for advices and also persons in Hawaii who could help me for a little project that I would like to do for my research.
I wonder if it would be doable to stabilize a Go Pro camera on a kite launched from a large vessel. Wind conditions around Hawaii are typically Easterly trades at about 10 m/s. I would like the Kite to fly at least 100m above the ship and even higher if possible. I also wonder if the Kite could be stabilize for 2 or 3 hours using a winch if for example the vessel stay in steady position facing the wind.
Thank you very much if you can give an opinion on this. And I would be also very interested if someone already tried something similar over the sea (with whitecaps) and would like to share few picture for my research.
