KAP Antarctica

Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) at Cape Denison was a challenge – the wind is the strongest recorded at sea level on the planet. ┬áMostly it blew from midnight to midday, and it was strong and cold.

The only kite which worked was a Harald Prinzler FF03a (made by Sally).

The allup weight of the rig was just under 2kg.  The setup was pretty reliable, it never crashed and never misbehaved except when the wind was very strong (around 40kts)
