To take pictures from a kite, you need three things: a kite, a camera, and a special rig that attaches the camera to the kiteline and activates the shutter button on the camera. Here’s how to do it.

Another but probably less robust way to do this is to just velcro a small RC servo right over the shutter button. I did this for my KAP rig so that I can use an airplane radio to flip the switch. The servo is plastic so it won’t damage the shutter though it requires some adjusting to make sure it triggers every time.
