Ever since I flew at Salthlmen for the very first time I have regarded this location as a GREAT place for flying no matter what kind of kiting you prefer. And like said, doing kite aerial photography and videography here is no exception. Yesterday the conditions were as close to perfect as they get, so … let’s fly a kite!

I had a few hours to spare so I stuffed all my KAP gear into the kite mobile and headed straight for Saltholmen. I stopped just once to watch the final kilometres of the 2nd stage of the Tour de France! 😉 I got there at about five-thirty in the afternoon and found myself a nice wind shelter that I could use for my headquarters.

Then I walked over to the highest point of the place and checked out the wind speed and its direction in order to pick the right kite/line combination. I ended up with a Premier Kites Rokkaku and a rather thick 100kg flying line, hoping the combination would be up to the task of creating a stable flight and enough pull to lift the KAP-rig safely.

It didn’t take long until I had the rig up and running too and the GoPro connected to my phone so that I could see what it was capturing. All right, let’s get it all up there!

Soon I had let out all the flying line. The Rokkaku was pretty stable high up there and the picavet and the gimbal did a good job keeping the camera from jumping all around up there too. Judging from the screen of my phone, everything looked good so with a quick tap on the record button on the screen, I started to capture some footage of the surroundings.

While the gimbal rotating really, really, really slowly all the 360 degrees, I walked around trying to capture some cool-looking footage, carefully watching the screen of my phone. Due to the strong sunlight, it was sometimes difficult to see what was going on on the screen, but hopefully, there would be some useful footage after all.

After an hour or so I brought down the camera, out of power and with a fully loaded memory card. It was time to pack up everything and head back home after a great time flying at Saltholmen.

Oh yes, I did of course put together a video. You can check it out over at the AERIALIS Kites YouTube channel or just down below. I hope you’ll like it!
