I'm an avid kite flyer. I fly fighter kites. Fighter kites are the small diamond shape sails flown with a single line. The kites can be made to spin, turn and dive by adding and releasing line tension. They're called fighters because of competitions that can take place between 2 or more fighter kites vying to push the opponents down. I like to fly the fighter kite solo because of the grace of the kites movements and because the choreography of gestures is a combination of control and understanding how to let the kite speak for itself.
I own some paper fighters, a large rokaku, a multi-diamond stunt kite, and a few geometrics. But, I mainly fly a pointed to this Kite Photography page that her husband Philippe had found because he's getting into attaching cameras to his kites. Wow. Really excellent. Sounds like a lot of fun. I hope to try that one time if I can. Still trying to figure out what they use to trigger the camera.
Maybe Charles Benton's Notes on Kite Aerial Photography will help me figure out the details.
