Cool kite video filmed in Indiana

The Illinois Kite Enthusiasts (IKE) held their third annual retreat at Indiana Dunes State Park near Chesterton, Ind. Sep. 21 and Sep. 22. The club includes single-line, dual-line and quad-line Revolution kite fliers, although the Revolution kites are particularly popular with IKE members. The Revolution kite team "180 Go!" is made up of IKE members, most of whom were at the retreat.

During the IKE retreat, club members met the owner of a radio-controlled quad-rotor helicopter, which was equipped with a gyro-stabilized video camera. The video below is the result of a 180 Go! flight while the aircraft was filming.
