This is the easy to assemble version of the KAPtery Picavet. Includes the Picavet cross, two stainless steel KAP-snaps for securing the Picavet lines to the kite line, 30 feet of 50 pound braided Dacron line, and all other hardware. The fiberglass shaft is fully assembled, so no gluing or drilling is required.
The Picavet has two attachment points to the kite line about five feet apart, and the Picavet lines pass through four eyes on the Picavet cross. These multiple attachments reduce rotation of the rig and swinging of the rig along the axis of the kite line. The three inch shaft between the cross and the rig acts as a moment arm and allows the mass of the camera to level the rig.
Assembly time: 30 to 45 minutes
Weight: 75 grams.
Above: The camera rig stays steady and level regardless of the angle of the kite line (my hands).
Above: The star on the top of the cross allows the Picavet shaft to be quickly locked in any of 16 positions to shoot oblique photos in any direction.
