So you're saying the camera uses the kite line for sighting the camera??? The image of the boat is remarkably steady despite the kite line making pretty erratic constant movement. Really neat to see your boat underway. Something that you almost never get to see from this perspective. Will have to look up that picavet rig.
Anyone used one of those helocopter toy thingys to take pictures. Briefly looked at a four rotor device being marketed by Brookstone. Links to an iPad
and downloads video through an onboard lens via WiFi
or something. Cost wasn't too bad, under $300, though don't know how worthwhile it would be as it seems like something you'd tire of quickly. Maybe get a bunch of boaters together and do a joint buy or rent it out for one day excursions.
Now we have to discuss sail trim, LOL.
