I didn’t get to fly at Ekeberg the other day, but yesterday came with perfect flying conditions by the water!

The sun was shining, the temperature just a tad over +20° and this nice and steady breeze from the south clocking in at about 6 meters per second. Now, you won’t find better conditions for doing some Kite Aerial Photography than that!

I picked up a handful of different-sized Rokkakus and the Peter Lynn Pilot, some suitable flying lines and my KAP gear chucked it all into my car and hit the road.

When I left the house I was a bit uncertain about where to fly, but after some minutes on the road, I’d made up my mind. I wanted to go to a spot that looked like a fantastic place to fly, at least according to Google Maps, Stangerholmen!

It’s a fifteen minutes drive from my house to the nearest parking and then another 20-odd minutes walk on private roads well worth walking because Stangerholmen definitely is a great location for kite aerial photography and videography! Absolutely stunning surroundings where the water meets the land shaped by the elements for thousands of years.

Really steady in from the sea at six meters per second making for close to perfect conditions for putting up the Peter Lynn Pilot as a lifter for the KAP gear and that kite had no problems whatsoever to generate enough pull to keep it all up there and without pulling me out of my socks!

So I soon had everything flying, and I was good to go by controlling the GoPro camera using my phone!
