- 144 pages A4 size with plastic perforated bounding,
and a true photograph glued on the cover.
- auto-edited by Mark COTTREL,
- manager of The Kite Store, in London,
- in 1987, when nothing else was available.
A very unequal interest in the
matters. The best must be sorted out! The page setting is
confusing. The explanation on some photographic concepts
and the choice of film size are a little bit odds. There
are two programs in basic, one is to choose the size of
the kite, and the second one to calculate the maximum altitude
that it could reach. Some mounting proposals should be avoided.
The lists of films and English shops are absolutely out
Some quite correct plans of a parafoil
72" (1,8m) and for a delta 144" base (3,6m) are
next to an incomplete plan of a Pelybox.
Three pages are interesting on
the operating precautions and on safety. The author knows
about it as he saw a camera Lomo 135BC falling from
700 feet (234m)!
As conclusion, a book that the
passionate and collector kaper will look, but really out
of date on many matters.
