Who needs a helicopter?

Today we flew in the Iao Valley. We got lots of good pictures, but I don't have the time or the bandwidth to get them all up to the site today. Here's one of the good ones, though for a preview:

The Iao Valley brought up an interesting problem, though. It would be difficult to impossible to fly the kite above the Iao Needle, and the rig in its current state is unable to aim above the horizon line (ie level with the ground) .. So, anyway, it was impossible to get a photograph of the Iao Needle from the air.

I would like to get maybe a 120-160 degree movement in the tilt servo to alleviate this problem. The servo currently only has about 90 degrees of movement.
