Chris Anderson was lucky enough to visit the Google campus and took some arial pictures with a digital camera mounted to an RC plane. To enhance the picture taking capability of the rig he decided to make a gyro stabilized system to mount the camera onto.
For the tilting camera mount and base, you’ll need a sheet of relatively thin aluminum. I used a .032 X 6 X 12 sheet. Anything thicker won’t bend properly. I cut out several prototypes from cardboard before committing to metal (and still had to do the metal twice, when the first sheet proved to be too thick). I’ve made a pdf that you can print out and use as a template (when printing, set “page scaling” to “none” so it prints full-size). This one was designed for a Canon Digital Elph camera (all the recent vintages, from the 500 to 900 series, are about the same size); if you’re using a different camera you may need to modify some dimensions slightly to fit.”
