The one thing I'd consider is what will the image look like if you're in the image with the kite flying.

Correct, that's what I was thinking, how to keep the line out of the image (retouch in postprocessing)?

A photographer friend of mine uses helicopters to shoot from (with skilled pilots, who can follow directions WRT distance and angle and speed, and fly safely at the same time!), and a door removed while being strapped in.

Cheers,
Bart

I love shooting from a heli - some of my best work was done without just a seat belt keeping me safe!  The right pilot makes a huge difference, I know the gent who was flying in the video link - he's great, just kept taking instructions from the cameraman to get closer...

Did that over Hawaii volcanoe Nat park 6-7 years ago, that was a blast!
