Kite flight (too windy for balloons, ahem “aerostats”)

Inflation of aerostat
The aerostat hanger.
The end of the string.
The 9-footer is just so stable. But not enough wind to lift the cameras this day.
And so we send up the 16-foot workhorse. See that little dot? That’s the camera array.
The 16-footer flew nice and vertical, but pulled really hard. Processed images to follow soon.
Canon S100s from Kaptery — the silver one is an NIR adapted one; the black one is RGB color.


Edit: forgot the camera array:
