Robotic ChaseCam for a paraglider

Tell us the story of your project.: 

Passive chasecams wobble quite a bit and 3axis gimbals are a bit too expensive and fragile so I thought I would build a prototype of a chasecam that would be mechanically stabilized using an IMU and some servos connected to control surfaces whilst still being rugged.

Worked kind of ok but to test it I would need to build one lighter, with a lot more drag and perhaps software that is more easily customizable. Still fun though :)
