  1. interesting. you'd think the camera would weigh down the kite's string and the kite itself.
     
  2. Being an old two line kite flyer I can assure you that there are kites that will lift a human off the ground and they aren't really all that large. Sometime you need to go see a kite flying contest, it is pretty amazing the tricks that you can do with a kite and the control that you have.

    I'll take a tiny bit of credit for a couple of phone calls with Doug and finding a link that led him to the kite/rig maker. Here is where he bought his equipment:
    Brooxes

    I also find it interesting.
