Assisted by the family
I didn't crash the kite and wasn't pulled over and sent headlong across the beach by the wind and strength of the kite at all! Must be getting better. I can even hold the kite fairly still while it's up.
This time to film we used a GoPro (thanks Tom Poole-Kerr) which is a lot lighter weight for the kite to carry, and the results are a lot better.
You can see the footage of the first trials with the GoPro attached to the kite here:
Starting to feel that this might actually work in the Arctic. Only 12 weeks to go now before I set off....
