Kite aerial photos

Another fun way to destroy cameras.

A large triangular box kite with wings was needed to lift the compact camera used for this project.

I tried two ways to trigger the camera.
The first was to press the self timer and launch the kite hoping it would ascend and stabilize within 10 seconds.
The second was via a line running up to a mechanical finger which pressed the shutter release when the line was pulled.
