Kite camera at Bastion Point

I rigged up a tiny video camera to a cheap parafoil kite and flew it at Bastion Point, the video is pretty difficult to watch (lots of jerky movement doesn’t make for a restful viewing experience), but there are some fun stills to be found. Here you see the shortcomings of the sensor, add a bit of sudden movement and it bends the horizon and starts rolling Bastion Point and the Hauraki Gulf up, Inception style.

And here in a slightly different mounting location, showing the complexity of the string rig that keeps the foil together. That’s Selena on the left, and your fearless hero with arms outspread like an anteater on the right.
