Solution

A kite cant be go upto that much height. There are so much frictions like wind.And also the object needs a very huge momentum to enter into zer gravity. Thats why rockets uses high power engines to provide a high momentum at the barrier. A kite cant get that momentum. Actually a kite cant go that much high. Hence it cant be used as an elevator. Thanks man. You are thinking beyond the limits. keep it up.
