Skyteline - kite line mount for Gopro with electronic stabilization

Postby Europ2 » Thu Jun 23, 2016 4:38 pm

Action cam 3-axis gimbals are not suited for water use. They are not effective in kite line mounts.
This is an interesting device from France that should be released in a few weeks: a action cam kite line mount with electronic stabilization;

During pole or kite use (water, snow, sand, ...) pole or lines point to the rider 100% of the time.
3D Gimballs are therefore overkill and what is needed is just an external level - 1 axis Gyro - computing the earth or sky line level with a brushless motor, therefore the name.

Looking like a digital camera, waterproofnest is obviously the key .....
No price or release date announced yet.

Raw video, no post prod.... interesting what you can get with only a 1-axis control board and a brushless motor :o
They could have filmed even closer to the rider though .....
