Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) is photography generated by lifting a camera into the sky through use of a kite. The camera is triggered either remotely or automatically to take aerial shots and can be attached directly to the kite, or more commonly secured to an adjustable rig suspended from the kite line. With this elevated view, pilots can capture landscapes, objects, architecture, and people in entirely new ways. The beginning of KAP dates back to the late 19th century. Aerial photography from kites is, in fact, one of the oldest forms of remote sensing of the Earth´s surface.

A foil kite utilizes a number of cells made of a special fabric in front that allows air to go in; and then a different, closed fabric in the back that retains the air gathered creating an inflating effect that makes the kite much more powerful. Developed by German kite enthusiast Ralf Beutnagel, the KAP Foil Kite 1.6 is a reliable and stable lifter kite for a camera rig. They have been in use successfully since 2006 and have impressed many Kite Aerial Photographers by their flight characteristics. The wind range of the KAP Foil is fairly wide. These kites perform very well even in ground winds. In stronger winds, all KAP Foils fly very stable without slipping sideways.
