PAP is the short
form of Pole
At this a camera is carried with the help of a telescopic pole in
the air. So you can achieve a height until 15 metres. PAP is an
option or addition to KAPing, especially when there is not enough
wind for kiting.
For the control and
triggering of the camera you can use the same technology like you
use for KAPing. For example you can fix your KAP-Rig, which is
usually mounted in the kiteline, at the end of the telescopic
pole. Therewith you can use your radio control and the image
I use an 8 metres
pole, which is normally used for window cleaning. At the end
of that telescopic pole I mount a manually adjustable joint head.
On that joint head I fixed a corner bar for my Canon G10.
The camera can be triggered with a Hähnel radio remote release. Additionally I can use my
transmitter and an accu. So I can check the image on my monitor.
