I would NOT send a Minolta Autocord up in the air on a kite. Unless you don't like it. Every time (after you take one photo) you bring it down, it's an adventure in disaster.

There are a couple KAP groups on Flikr. Start there. I have a setup using Model Airplane RC equipment, although RC car stuff works as well and yo u don't get into problems with RC aircraft fliers by stealing their radio space. I also have both a home built and a kit built gizmo for attaching said servos together with a small Cannon Sure shot camera. Auto focus, auto exposure, auto advance.

Do some research before sending your Minolta up.
