(lecture notes from isea2012) by danny bazo and bruno vianna.
Lucas Bambozzi is head of FesAtivall in Brazil. He told about flying priest from Brazil, who left on a balloon. Bruno Vianna did a project in kites in the night, where kids were aiming texts on the kites with a projector.


  • Spray soap-water on the seems of the Mylar inflatable, to find a leak.
  • Helium lift: 1 gr of lift for 1 litre helium.
  • In hot climate conditions, a black trash-bin material can be used to lift; the black material heats the air inside.
  • A sphere is the most economical structure for lift.
  • A sled-kite is good stable kite for lifting a camera.
  • With a camera; fix the on-button with tape.
