Has anyone here done any kite videos?

YouTube is full of folks using kites to capture their vessels underway. I want to try this, this summer. I think I have the proper kite selected and I scored an Emerson HD ActionCam at Big Lots for like $40.00. Its quite similar to a Go Video w/o the fish eye effect. Anyway, I'm not sure how to mount the camera onto the kite. It needs to be steady and I think needs to follow the line to the boat for best results. The mounting hardware I see online looks unnecessarily complicated and/or pricey. If you have any experiences, tips or tricks I'd love to hear them. Perhaps you could post your vids if they aren't on YouTube already.

Thanks

Jeff
