After a near windless summer I was really excited one day in late September that was particularily windy to finally get my kite and camera up and flying at Spanish Banks.
Short story is it was too windy and I lost my kite (string broke). I did get some rather interesting pictures though, but nothing useful for mapping.
My kite was lost at sea, never to be seen again (despite my rescue attempts).

Yesterday, inspired after returning from the 2014 Barnraising, I decided to try my homemade kite that has yet to sucessfully fly (thanks to a no-wind summer). This time I opted to build my camera a houding made from some cardboard and a plastic plant pot.
The kite flew fantastically in (5-20 km/h wind), however the photo app, Tina Time Lapse glitched and didnt record anything.
I haven't tried this, but a lot of work has been done on it by two Google Summer of Code students.
sorry to hear about that first kite loss!
