Grimm (* 1966), living in a litte town named Münstedt in the
administrative district Peine (Lower Saxony/Germany).
flying I started in autumn 2004, after I visited with my
daughter Jessika the kite festival in Wolfenbüttel. I
wanted to know more about the many interesting flying
objects and so I found
the page of the german
kite forum. On that page I found many useful
informations to satisfy my hunger for knowledge. In nowadays
you can meet me nearly daily in the german kite forum.
First I started
with two line kites and trickkiting, than I tested single line
and four line kites. Meanwhile the flying of single line kites
and the construction of kites predominates. I resigned with the
two lined kiting completely.
my search in the internet I found in summer 2006 informations
about people which made aerial photos with the help of kites.
That was extremely interesting for me, especially I had more and
more fun in single line kiting. The more so because I am taking
photos for more than 25 years. So I started collecting
informations about kite aerial photography. I found a lot of
informations in the internet and got many useful hints from Ralf
Beutnagel. Many questions became answered and so the first
rig was developed. I was ready for the first aerial pictures.
my first visit of the kite flyers meeting in june 2007 I got
many new insights in KAP. The "KAP-Point" was the
meeting place for many KAPers. It was a good opportunity for me
to become acquainted with the KAPer scene and to gaze the
different solutions for kite aerial photography.
I have two rigs (Canon G10 and Canon G1X)
with radio control and image transmission as well as a hand adjustable Rig (GoPro Hero2)
for kite aerial photography at disposal.
thankful for many technical hints and practical tips which I have received up to now from all sides.
I have regular telephone and personal contact to
the other members of our KAP-Team
(Ralf Beutnagel, Wolfgang Bieck and Andreas Napravnik).
Common kap activities and kap reports round off this cooperation.
about my deployed technology und my aerial photos you con find
in the category Technology and in
can find something more about me at our Homepage of the
syndicate "Bunte Vögel", a consilidation of kite
flyers of the area Peine, Salzgitter, Braunschweig and Uelzen.
