Gimbal system for GoPro mounting on tank
I have been using the GoPro suction cup on my tank to record videos from a somewhat POV perspective. I want to get a Gimbal system that can display the lean of the bike when going around tight corners. I want to try to keep it on the tank if possible, never seeing this set up, I'm not exactly sure what it would look like what it seem possible.
I have been researching the gimbal mounts, learning more about the different numbered axis systems and how each of them work. Since I only want to be able to capture the lean of the bike, I don't see the point in getting a 3 axis system (tilt, roll, pan) therefore I think a single axis (tilt only) system would work fine. It would keep the camera facing forward, but still tilting the camera left or right depending on the corner the bike is traveling through. I think this would look cool and show how much the motorcycle is leaned over while keeping the camera straight in a horizontal position.
Has anyone seen a system like this or have any tips or ideas for me? Im open to discussion and want to see what others have to say about this topic.
