Kite1

For this weekend project, I’ve made a Kite Aerial Photography Rig (KAP). This was one of those projects that require remaking multiple times to get it so that it would fly. I started with a VEX robotics kit and then had to make lots of changes to make it lighter. Watch the video to learn more! For more instructions, please read the instructional post.

My thanks to Sparky, Jake, and the innocent bystanders who helped get the rig into the air at Gasworks Park in Seattle.
