Ah now thats where you need to think outside the box.
30m of Clothesline cable for $20 Steel cored with plastic sheath. In my mind it works. In reality.........
If that don't work I have a few rolls of electrical cable laying around the place to try as well.
one of these might be useful for pulleys, rope and the bar. The rope is quite long and the pulleys are OK. You can normally pick them up for $19.95 when they have a special.
Now lets see you do that around the pump track with a motorised trolley hanging down.
Pretty good though!
Pics of rig?
Here ya go. Very basic. 20mm t-piece, 3 chunks of 20mm conduit, 2 window roller pulley looking thingys (technical name) 30m roll of Clothesline wire, and a couple of big puleys from version 1.56234785 for added weight. Not even glued together at this stage. Added bonus is I can just put it slightly off the wheels and it locks itself in place.
That looked nice and smooth on the video... Well done... Good job!!!
Tomorrow I'll run some tests with my rig and I'll post a video ..
If I get a chance to set mine up in the daylight hours tomorrow arvo, I'll do the same, got some strange looks from the neighbours the other day.
Derek, How much of a slope have you got the cable on at the moment?
Have been checking out Youtube for ideas, these look ok, simple enough
my rig didn't work
i knew the pulleys were too small, i need around 30-35 degrees so the camera start moving...
need to get myself some pulleys like the second video above... these are the correct ones... where can i find this???
Try bunnings in the window section there are quite a few different types there. The ones I'm using came from there.
Time for some of this on the North Shore!
Anyone tried using one of these? http://littlegreatideas.com/stabilizer/diy/ or http://mutantville.com/blog/how-to-make-a-steadicam
This ought to help with some home movies. I'd like to see it follow someone through the bush though!
That's pretty impressive but will be interesting to see if they can get the 'Collision Avoidance System' worked out.
This video really cool. You can try to play with video plans. But it is more like addition, not a mistake/problem
