Universal steadicam gyro head

If you think you get strange looks now with standard rigs. Just attach this gyro head on any sled and you should be ready to go and get even stranger looks! I don't know how much it costs but it looks like it could be a cheaper alternative to the Alien Revolution. The system below is designed to be used on small R/C helicopter platforms and seems to provide a heading lock so the camera stays where you put it even thought the helo continues to move.

Nifty James, thanks for the link--looks pretty impressive although it's hard to tell exactly what degree of accuracy is being represented due to the thrashing around the guy is doing with the mount.

Coptercam had a system like this on top of a Steadicam a few years ago but it was a bit dodgy to use, and didn't work all that well.

On the video, it doesn't look even close to the accuracy the Alien revolution has.
