Build a Saturn V rig for KAP
Recently I got my Saturn V Rig.
The rig comes as shown in the picture, after 3 Hour the rig was ready. I should say thet I received the soldering done and a camera to fit in it so I didn´t have the make the hole to fit the camera.
As I didnt have and drill around I made the holes to asemple the lower part of the rig with a knife.
I couldn´t find the plastic circle to place between the lines of the Picavet suspension so I cut a slice of a water hose to replace it
The rig seems to work very well, and the CHDK coordinates the camera perfectly with the rig pan and tilt movements.
I am waiting for a bit of wind to test it on the skyes,
It would be good to see some photos from your archaeological missions, including more of the cool kite and how you attach the camera. Also how you are using a drone. You can post a research note (click "Write a research note" above) and drag photos into it. If you have a really big photo mosaic you can drag that into a note and it will display smaller but if people open it in a new tab it will be full size. Or you could upload the full resolution version to a photo sharing site (e.g., Flickr) and embed it or link to it, or just put a smaller version in the research note.
It is also good to hear what you think about the pros and cons of kites and drones. For many applications drones will eventually displace kites as the best way to lift a camera, but for now there might be some advantages of kites.
