DIY SteadiCam Model 3.0

An experimental DIY steadicam project.
Model 3.0, inspired by merlin design.

For the gimbal i've use with Traxxas #5151 half shaft, and a ball bearing, soldered at the top of a metal pipe.
The camera is fixed on an ebay flash bracket stand, so it can slide and change the position.
There are a few connections for counterweights, i've use some metal plate and washers.
The example video is filmed very fast, this stabilizer can be more accurate, in my opinion, by a more carefull counterweight load, and with a more experienced operator.
