Lights, Line Climbers, And Other Line Toys?

Recommended Posts

I'm a fan of line climbers...  yet I've never flown one successfully... I've tried my own designs, but have been hampered by weight and strength.  I've got a number of lights that I've hung from my line since coming to China (mostly balloon lights, or cheap LED light sword toys).  I've also flown various pinwheels as fun little ways of decorating my lines.

So, what's out there?  What works, what doesn't?

Line Poppers are cool. 

You can make a Picavet and do a little KAP (Kite Aerial Photography). They are fairly cheap and very easy to make.

Windsocks and tails can be hung off the line as well as the kite.  

I have used clip-on lights on the kite line(SLK) when I fly at night.

I'm working on a 3D print of the Estes Cineroc (I've labeled it the CinerocDV), using an 808 #16 keychain camera for my rocketry hobby...  I'm thinking that a few experiments using a kite would be in order for that.  My partner in the project is close to finishing it.
