Cookie Cruise 2010 – The Kite Camera

Posted by on Sep 28, 2010 in Ship's Log | 2 Comments

This was our first flight of the kite camera from Hacienda II.  Wind was about 10-15 kts with light chop.  The kite is a Flow Form with a servo controlled camera rig hanging from the line.  The camera is a GoPro HD which gives it that super wide angle framing.  Great fun — looking forward to doing it again – a nice sunny day would be fantastic!   Thanks to Matthew and Joe for help flying the rig!

    Very cool video!!! I love the editing you did and the camera work.

    Post more photos of your boat so I can either rip off your ideas… or be inspired by your ultra clean Targa!
