Say Hello to the Future of Kite Aerial Photography...
Whether you’re a hobbyist or professional kite user, this one’s for you. Introducing the one-and-only ‘plug in and play’ Camera Kite, designed to be, well, so much more than the kites you already know and love. In fact, this kite is so novel it even has its very own patent pending.
Imagine if your kite could take breath-taking aerial photographs. Is there a view in a wide-open space you’ve always wanted to see, but can never reach? Want to impress your friends and make them wonder how you’re able to capture such beautiful shots? Just want to have a bit of fun and change the way you spend your weekends? With the Camera Kite, there’s no need to imagine.
Simply install your action camera or even your smartphone into the Flexifoil Stabiliser, switch on time-lapse photography and send your kite up into the skies. Aerial photographs are taken automatically so no buttons to press, no screen to look at, you can simply enjoy flying your new kite and look forward to seeing a treasure-trove of photos saved to your action camera or smartphone.

KITE CAMERA PACKAGE INCLUDES:
The Camera Kite has been expertly engineered using high-quality nylon ripstop material with a Dacron cage construction. Why nylon ripstop? Well, not only is this material refreshingly lightweight, but it’s also far stronger than many would think - the perfect combination for a great kite-flying session! Why the Dacron cage? We use this to encase the spars (spars are the poles which make up the kite frame), as well as to help avoid any undesired wear and tear on the kite’s edges. Speaking of the spars, these are constructed using 5mm carbon fibre tubes which also house internal bungees to save time and hassle during assembly. The spars when assembled make up the kite’s robust carbon frame. The result? The kite is given a powerful stiff shape yet on a surprisingly light frame, boosting performance in both stronger and lighter winds.
Kite Reel and Support Strap
This kite reel features an ABS Plastic Body with an Aluminium Flying Line Glider, as well as Ball Bearings for more versatility and flexibility. The kite reel and accompanying support strap allow the user to safely and securely reel the kite in and out – quickly, easily, and smoothly.
The Camera Kite comes fully equipped with a well-built and good-looking rucksack. It’s the easiest way to store and carry your entire kite kit (yes, the entire kit) as well as all the accessories you know and love. The rucksack has been built using impressive heavy-duty nylon for reliability and strength you can always count on. A waterproof base is the perfect choice for any location, come dusk or dawn. Enjoy adjustable side release plastic buckles, adjustable shoulder straps, a drawstring closure, additional padding for comfort, a separate reel compartment bag (inside) and so much more. This rucksack comes in stunning black fabric with integrated white and grey prints.
By investing in the Camera Kite, you’ll also receive a 55 metre (180ft) Flying Line – featuring a 16-string braided polyester line and 120kg breaking strength. Connect the reel to the kite quickly, easily and hassle-free. It comes in white for a refreshingly neutral look.
Component Storage Bag
On top of the rucksack, we’ve also added in a convenient Component Storage Bag; crafted from high-quality, durable nylon for strength and stability designed to stand the test of time. Enjoy quick, easy and convenient storage of all your Camera Kite accessories. The bag features tasteful red and black prints.
Lightweight Kite Storage Bag
Enjoy quick and easy storage of your Camera Kite – just the kite – without having to go through the schlep of removing the wingtip, top and bottom spine spars. Enjoy an adjustable shoulder strap and a secure drawstring closer. The bag features attractive black and white prints that suit every taste.
Want to enable your kite to fly independently? In other words, without you (or anyone else) having to hold it in order to operate it? No problem! Use our cutting-edge Anchor Leash to achieve full kite-flying independence where and when you need it the most. The Anchor Leash features a high-quality durable Loop Extension and a Carabiner. The anchor leash comes in the colours black and red – stylish yet bold.
Simply insert this tough and robust ground stake into the ground to quickly, easily and effectively anchor your kite to your anchor leash for the most pleasurable independent flying. The Ground Stake has been built from stainless steel for your peace of mind. It measures 46cm x 0.8cm, in silver for a neutral look.
If you wish to lower and even direct your kite in your desired direction, traditionally you’d have to use your reel. With our sturdy yet comfortable padded Landing Handle, you can do so without having to use the reel. The Camera Kite’s Landing Handle is built from Nylon Padding, featuring a Nylon Loop extension and Carabiner too.
90° Attachment Arm
The Camera Kite’s 90° Attachment Arm represents the simplest, most effective way to attach your smartphone stabiliser or action camera to your kite. This 90° Attachment Arm is built from highly durable and robust ABS plastic that’s just as lightweight as it is strong. It comes in red and features a thumb screw.
While kite-flying is all in the name of fun, unexpected injuries can still occur – especially when you least expect them. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure! Safeguard and protect your hands with the Camera Kite’s exclusive Protection Gloves. They are made from HPPE Nylon Spandex Glass Fibre Knit, featuring PU coating. One size fits all for the utmost convenience. The gloves come in black and silver, matching any outfit and meeting any taste/personal preference.
Simply secure your action camera or your smartphone into one of the world’s smallest and lightest 1-axis stabilisers so while the kite is oscillating and moving in the sky, your action camera or your smartphone will remain straight. Highly intelligent, lightweight and a new design concept. Includes a mini USB cable for convenient charging.
