Aluminum Whittling

I've got another project on the bench - whittled out of aluminum & plastic. I have the machine tools, but I'm no machinist. If I made that claim, I could say I'm a house contractor because I have a hammer. Or a photographer, 'cause I have a camera. Wait.

Anyway, I've got a video project on the way, that needs a bunch of footage shot from a boat. A moving boat. Where there might be waves. And I don't want to make the viewer seasick.

So, this gadget is a 3-axis gyro stabilized camera mount. Based on a design I did 2 decades ago when filming from RC helicopters. (It was film back then - 35mm Eyemo with 100ft film loads)

Watch this space for more to come...
