I am conflicted between using servos, a gear motor with an encoder, or possibly even stepper motors.
I am not expecting magic out this this system, but I would like to have a platform that will help stabilize a majority of the bumps to make a relatively smooth image.
There is no image stabilization setting for the Go Pro camera. I want to use this camera because it's high quality video and small size.
often just not possible unless you are willing to throw away a lot of pixels.
