This pod consisted of a gyroscope for active stablization of the camera pod.
Balloon 1

The gyroscope was donated by Eric Schulz, and driven by a 12 volt motor via a drive belt. The unit was balanced and allowed to rotate on gimbal. It was powered by a lithium ion battery from a cordless dremel tool. The pod weighed about 1.7kg and was attached directly to the camera pod for stabilization.
