Trying to Video with Kite

1456 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  surfingkite
This upcoming weekend there is a long race with 'supposed' great winds.
I would love to try to video some ( all ) of the race using a kite.. any ideas????

Also, i thought about mounting a bracket on the stern rail to capture the 'effect' of heeling.

Any ideas on where I can get a kite that could lift a small video camera?
Also, what camera would be good enough to use????

Something like this perhaps?

As for kite type, One site I've seen recommends a parafoil type kite. They're small, don't require a support structure, and are stable on a single line.
