You could try a box kite,
or a tethered balloon.
An interesting project would be a computer controlled kite
servoed to hold a constant position.
Or a sky hook?
What about a remote site with a radio or laser link to your QTH?
The more ideas that you start with the more likely you will find a  
good solution.
