Real Estate Video from Helicopter

I have been hired to shoot and edit video of Real Estate from a helicopter. My first question was about vibration. He assured me the ride is "as smooth as glass". But he doesnt have a zoom lens attached to his head. Id really like to avoid any mistakes made from ignorance, those "why didnt I think of that?" situations.Anyone with experience in this? Camera is Sony AX-2000.

Ok so i found some threads on this forum that I missed before, wrong keywords I guess. Gyros are not in the budget. AX-2000 does not overcrank.
I didnt think to ask what kind of helicopter. I read an article where the guy held the cam on his lap on top of a foam pad.and reported acceptable results. I also have the option of tracking in after effects.

Thanks for any input.

I have use a Canon 7D in a Jetranger shooting video.
Without some kind of gyro you are not going to get very good results.
To much micro vibration no matter how smooth he flies.
