Note: The Picavet system I designed is for taking videos. As such there is no mechanism for activating the shutter release to snap a picture. If you are interested in having photos there are a number of programs such as Imagegrab that all you to pull pictures from videos.
To avoid confusion here is a list of terms that you will need to know throughout my Instructable:
Picavet = system of cord and pulleys that stabilizes a platform that the camera is attached to.
Picavet Platform = "X" shaped piece of plywood that the camera is mounted to.
Disclaimer: Although I have designed and built this KAP system with the safety of the camera in mind, I make no guarantee that your camera will be safe in the event of a crash. If you plan to build your own Picavet/KAP rig please understand that there is a chance that your camera could be broken and move forward with that information in mind. Also please be mindful of the Picavet during flight, abrupt changes in wind can cause the kite and picavet to move very quickly and if your not careful someone could be injured. Lastly never fly kites near people, power-lines, or in restricted airspace. Be safe out there!
