Cable Dolly Cam proof of concept done

Using the parts of a cassette player, a 9v battery and some scrap metal pieces I think I can build a working cable dolly for a lightweight vid camera.

Here Lewis is with me demoing this thing.

The motor is listed as 9V, awfully convenient to invite a 9V battery to drive it.

Next step is to make the runner longer to stabilize yaw. Then some gyros to stabilize pitch.

Battery pack case attached. Triangular frame added. Simple L bracket with a 1/4″ 20 thread as a tripod head created.
