    after see the price of balloons, think the kite is still very much affordable, but still, US$200 just for a kite only,

    notice most people DIY the camera cradle, those commercial available camera rig cost a few K in US$.

    think can only see see look look the photos from the web, may need licence and clearance to get this thing up in the air here.

    this is also photography, Aerial Photography.

    I have check this out long before, but last time it's not so popular, cos one roll only can shoot 36 frame, now have 8g card, can shoot till the PnS camera battery flat flat.

    but really don't think can do it here.

    this is the rig looks like, do you think the wind here is strong enough to lift this up?

    unless you modified it, AFAIK most helicopters is only have enough power to lift itself up.

    It may be feasible overseas as the wind conditions are more favourable there... locally the winds rarely gust above 10 knots, thus such kites would be difficult to launch and keep up.

    getting the camera up may not that difficult, but I'm more concern about the legal issue here..

    i suppose if you go to traditional kite-flying area should be no problem?
