- Very good for moderate altitude assignment. The right kite can carry a fair payload, including pan & tilt and direct vision systems.
- A good lower altitude solution for many applications.
- Does need wind to fly, and can be vulnerable to turbulence at lower altitudes depending on surroundings (buildings, trees etc).
- Good, suitable kites are not cheap, nor are pan & tilt mounts.
- Terrain features can limit altitude and visibility.
