Dal Kap Project

During the 2003-2004 semesters at Dalhousie university 4 undergraduate engineering students were looking for an inexpensive way to take aerial photographs. After some scientific/cost analysis of the different options they decided that using a kite would be the best way to accomplish this task. There is more information on the students web site here.

The teams aerial photos are beautiful!
In March of 2004 the engineers had their rig and kite (a maxi-dopero) finished. Here are some shots of the team with their rig and kite…


  1. nice photos of halifax

    how far was the kite up


    im in process of putting my digtal cam on my compound cody kite


  2. I am not 100% sure but I would guess around 400 to 600 feet.
