Katoen Natie

Taking 180° aerial pictures with a kite hanging 50 meter above the  Katoen Natie in the harbor of Antwerp. A beautiful building with a lot of interesting art  just near the main building (hard to see in the picture). Maybe you can notice the solar panels on the roof of the warehouses.


Who is remembering this place from schooldays...



Just hanging there...


De Leeuw van Waterloo

 Next year, 200 years after the battle,  the site will be totally renovated.
De Leeuw van Waterloo (45meters high), the main memorial monument of the battle of Waterloo,  seen from a kite.  If you haven't kite to see the lion that close...you have to clime 226 stairs to reach the top..

KAP Nieuwpoort



Just played a little with the black & white option in lightroom ..

Oostende

First time using a photo stitch program to create a 180° view on the harbor of Oostende.  It's not perfect but I love that program.   Asking for more!

Storm is coming up




Today I had an appointment with Sue and Frank for a KAP afternoon down town Antwerp. Bad weather (wind) conditions and the Rubens market forced us to look for more open space. First we tried Doel... but the wind was blowing our kites too close to the power lines to have fun.Later that afternoon we had some great flying at the boarder of 't land van Saefthinge'

downlink & remote control - Camremote


This is my (new) ground station for KAP. It's based on the Camremote.   The large screen is mounted together with the remote conrole and in the back the 5,8 Mhz receiver is nicely built in with batteries and on/off switch. If needed; for example in critical situations,  I can easily put the whole unit away in a accessible bag on my belt.
