Went on down to Juniper Valley Park with Oshi and her family — the winds were strong and the kite went flying. The rig held up well this time, and having an assistant to hold the kite while rigging the camera helped. Camera still didn’t grab everything I wanted, but I’m getting a hang of rigging it now. I will probably build or purchase a more workable KAP setup soon.
Of particular note – a falcon went and buzzed the camera rig this time around. Unfortunately, the camera had decided to turn off on its own during that run. It was great though!
