DJI Osmo as Polecam

Just a thought, but as the Osmo can be controlled remotely from iPhone/Android, it could be mounted on a pole, which in turn is mounted on a tripod, then Bingo! - you have a Polecam...

Problem is, the motion at the top of at pole is not the same as the motion of being carried by a human's hand. Human hand motion is higher frequency lower amplitude "noise" while the sway of a polecam is much lower frequency and much higher amplitude. I have my doubts that the Osmo can handle what it finds at the top of a pole.

That said, I'm happy to be proven wrong. Anyone wants to try it and post images, I'm interested in what they find.
