Low cost gyroscopic camera stabilizer

Gyroscopic Camera Stabilizer. Ethan writes in -

A few months ago I stumbled on the Freefly MOVI (video above) that uses active vibration reduction to stabilize cinema cameras by using an IMU to measure camera shake and actuate a gimbal to cancel out the movement (video in article).  I realized this was the same technology that multicopter pilots have been using for years to stabilize aerial cameras, but without the $15,000 price tag of the MOVI.  This is my attempt to get 90% of the functionality of the MOVI for 5% of the cost.

Read more, great work Ethan.
