Daniel Allen commented on SkyrisFX's blog post Adventures in Gimbal Design
"Jeff and David, I love how you're design has come so far from that original tank. I'm glad you stuck with the idea of trying to level the camera near the multi's CG. However I've come to see that mounting the gimbal at the edge…"
