Hey guys! Me again! I'm here on behalf of a Mechanical Engineering Project that requires a mechanism to be built that will launch a kite in low winds so that it will be shot up to 50m where the better winds are. I'm back with another few questions to ask all of you. Any help is appreciated!
1. How do you normally launch your kites? Besides tugging and running backwards?
2. Were there any methods that didn't work? Why?
3. At what speed do you consider low winds? How fast must the wind be to lift a kite?
4. What's the weight of your kite along with the photography rigging?
5. What types of kite do you use? What are their specs? What winds do they fly in? How heavy can the lift?
6. What type of cameras do you use?
7. What has been the smallest and largest kites/payloads you have used?
8. Do you KAP on land or at sea? Which do you prefer?
9. How much would a full set be? Kite and rigging included?
10. Have you ever used methods that involved an energy source? Batteries etc.
11. Do you fly on your own or with a group?
I have an Echo light wind dual line kite for sale. Very little air time on it and a very crisp sail. It is practically brand new. Into the Wind sells them for $140. I would just like $100 including shipping to the US. Includes sleeve. Ask if you have questions.
