My friend has been building his own gyro cam just for fun (retired computer programmers do the strangest things), and it is coming along pretty good. The other day he followed me through Deals Gap on a spirited (not blistering) pass:

I love when they show the gyro cam video in MotoGP. So sweet and you get cool idea of the lean angle.

Re: Chased by a gyro cam

That's awesome! He have any info online somewhere about how he's building it? As I non-retired computer programmer, this is something I'd love to screw aorund with.

The gyro audio is pretty terrible though.

Re: Chased by a gyro cam

Fallis, There are a couple of videos that show up at the end..."gyrocam test" and "MEMS gyrocam closeup" that show the mid prototype (the early one was HUUUGE). But I don't know if he has put anything out describing the gyro board and servos.
