Just thought i'd get some opinions before i attempt this. Wouldn't want to injure myself or god-forbid my kite
-- (Eclipse thruster
I have the Oregon ATC2000 video camera and mounting it on the LE looks pretty crappy (screen shot):
So inspired by this video: http://www.kiteworld.tv/martyn-hogg-on-the-atc2k/2/
I decided to rig up my own camera mount (camera attaches on the clip)
about 2 meters above the bar
This is the bare bones. I'm planning on adding padding around the metal base .. its a hunk of metal that i wouldn't want flying into my face. Also, the 2 loops on the bottom would be tighter and more compact. I'll also make sure there's nothing sharp rubbing against the lines.
1) the line snapping at the top of the base
2) lines crossing (i.e. back roll...) and getting caught at the base of the camera making the kite loop. I figure I'll wrap the the camera and base so there's nothing for it to catch.
I can't see this affecting the way the kite flies too much. -- maybe more depowered?
I'm heading to Cabarete in 2 weeks and thought it be nice to have this set up for my trip.
Do you think I'm totally off on this? Or that it's totally dangerous?
