    I have been building drones for 4 years….. but kites are the way to go. – vested interests are determined to see the end of personal drone usage…

    I remember seeing this and thinking, "How cool!"  Now I have a Phantom drone and this video seems quaint.

    i dont get how you actually take a photo? And what settings would one use with sush a method (pretty shaky)

    P.S. I wish i had the time, skills and resources to build this and try it out!

    All the nay sayers. "You should use a hydrogen balloon." "to unstable" you don't get it. He likes photography, kites and building. So he built it! I say we'll done sir! You invisible it, you built it.

    @taxiuniversum if it's too windy for a tethered balloon, it's too windy for a kite. if it's not windy enough for a kite, even better for a balloon. enough helium to lift a dslr and balloon would actually cost well under $100, but to hell with helium. hydrogen is cheap and easy to produce and so is hot air.

    @ creepyloner1979:

    Yea, right. Except for the fact that of course balloons WILL NOT work in wind (or be exactly as "unstable" as a kite would be then). Plus, just one single filling of helium for a balloon capable of lifting a SLR will cost you hundreds of dollars. If you have that kind of money, settling for a rc-helikopter would actually be much better. I like the idea of doing this with a kite – it has something poetic, aside of all its other advantages (low-tech and inexpensive).

    i would NEVER trust my dslr camera to something that plummets out of the sky the moment the wind changes. and not a single mention of balloons in the entire video? they mention pigeon-mounted cameras but not balloons, which work just like this guy's kite, except with less vibration and no need for wind.

    Beautiful photography. Lucky for the budding KAP enthusiast today that they don't have to be such tinkerers to get started. Most everything you need can be easily purchased pre-made with electronics installed.
