Kite camera at Bastion Point

General, Reckons

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.
