The Science and the Innovation of aerial photography / video …

There is nothing I enjoy better than seeing what others have put together in regards to aerial video and photography rigs for an rc helicopter.   I recently came across a site that may be of interest to you if you are into building your own aerial rig for your camera.   I also enjoy creating my own ways of producing a rig that will support a camera as well as be light enough to get in the air.  One site I came across in particular has to do with trouble shooting all potential problems associated with rc helicopters and the weight aspect.  The link to the site is http://www.myresearch.lt/blog/onboard_camera/onboard_camera.phtml.  If  , however you are looking to produce a homemade gimbal for your camera in order to do video on the ground economically ,   you can find out more at http://www.yb2normal.com/DIYsteadicam.html.

Here is a rig I built using lightweight  1/2 inch copper piping ,  the weight so far is just under 4 pounds ,  just around the same weight as my pro 60 mount but without the servos.

Enjoy.
