Suspension

The camera could also be mounted directly in the kite, but most often it is mounted in the kite line with a suspension that has a little distance to the kite. The distance is to reduce movements that could be exerted by the kite on the camera. It also makes it possible to fly the kite at a higher altitude with more stable wind conditions before hanging the camera in the line.
In order to align the photos as accurately as possible with the horizon, a method is used that allows the suspension to compensate for any skew.
