First Person View Kite Flying???

Recommended Posts

PowerUp Toys: they have a Bluetooth controlled motor with a prop for paper airplanes; fly a paper airplane controlled by your cell phone. Cool stuff.

In November, they're launching a FPV paper airplane rig. I bet it wouldn't be too difficult to gut the mechanism by stripping off the props and housing and attaching it to a kite. It's kind of hard to tell from the video, but I think it'd be fairly light weight.

For sure video from the kite's perspective is great. Where this setup stands apart is that with the goggles and your cell, you are seeing what the kites sees as you're flying. It would definitely add a new dimension to flying as you aren't seeing the kite from 30-120 feet away... you're in the "cockpit".
