    I have threatened to strap my GoPro to a kite and launch it on Yelverton Field. When I was first given it I'd suggested I do that but was told 'no', .... but the camera's quite old now and I don't get a lot of use out of it, so why not.

    Only issue you would need to overcome would be to fabricate a gimble for the gopro that would 'level' and remove the shakiness .

    Hope you give it a go , would love to see some footage :)

    Thanks. I've got quite a few kites of my own sitting around doing nothing, though I'm not sure too many would be up to the task. And it would be the simplest of fixtures to the kite; nothing as sophisticated as a gimble. I imagine watching any resulting video might bring on a certain amount of sea-sickness.
