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.
