DIY'er crafts affordable gyro-stabilized camera platform

Darren Murph

We've definitely seen a camera(phone) holding on for dear life whilst snapping pics of the world below, but an adventurous DIY'er apparently felt the need to conjure up an inexpensive alternative of his own. Aiming to keep the camera steady while the conjoined aircraft moved above, a relatively thin sheet of aluminum, Canon point-and-shoot camera, an "off-the-shelf heading hold gyro (preferably one that resists gyro drift)," and a few utensils were basically all that was needed to finish the job. Best of all, the creator was kind enough to leave us a few templates and words of advice, but for those just window shopping for DIY endeavors, check out the video waiting after the break.
