OK - I saw your post in the forum, and I'll bite: how do you control what the camera shoots from a kite?
really interesting idea!
The rig I use most of the time has motorized pan and tilt axes that you control from an RC transmitter. The shutter is controlled the same way.
Some of the other people I know who do kite aerial photography also have a video downlink so they can see what the camera is pointed at. I don't use a video downlink, but after a while you get a feel for where the camera is pointing. So to some extent it's guesswork, but really it's just having a feel for it.
If you're interested in giving it a try, I can set you up with some URLs for suppliers and the KAP forums.
Glad you like it!
