I needed to test my tweaked autoKAPduino rig with some fresh parts in it.
What better place to test it around the corner and revisit the wonderful Tasmantoren?

The rig did well and so did the ITW Triton.
Who had a tough time in very gusty wind.
As an extra I got one of the best light shows of the year.
Woohoo!

I had only about 45 minutes to play around today so I gave it a go.

The wind was very, very gusty and about 5 bft.
And there was a bit of rain.
Not very ideal.
But I wanted to give the HQ 7' Graphic Delta a go.

In Groningen we have this new building that is quite something.
The Tasmantoren.
A nice object for a KAP session.

Pretty scary all together.
The Delta went nose down in flight twice but I could recover it.
Maybe it was a bit too much for this rascal. :)

And I had a visitor. A nice woman who was very surprised that people take pictures from cameras suspended from a kite line. :)

GoPro combined with the DIY Poor Man's Paint Mixer Stick Half Picavet.

Just testing the tweaked autoKAPduino rig with the fresh S95 running CHDK and 56" samurai rokkaku.

The good news: it worked like a gem.
The bad news: it was too cold for ice-cream. :)

Ameland is a great Island to go to with kids.
I had some of the best times of my youth on this Island.

The sun is dipping into the sea with this great color.
Love it. :)

I had two chances to do some KAPing during a hit-and-run-weekend with my little family.
How I love the PFK for doing great in the, sometimes fierce, sea wind.

Doing a minor dusk KAP session while helping out a friend that started playing with a rokkaku and an AuRiCo rig.
We arrived pretty late at the site but the colors of the sky turned out really nice. :)
You can even see some localized rain in the distance but that did not reach us.

This is one of my favorite spots to fly a kite.
