I've purchased several slip rings from that eBay seller and they work really well- can't beat the price either.

Hi, Looks really cool, a little too fast if anything, as i would get dizzy looking through the camera on the ground :-)

How are you hoping to get this to work remotely?

I'm definitely going to need to use exponential settings to help reduce the problem of the camera zooming around. 

I'll be operationalizing it like any other pan/tilt configuration on a plane (whether X8 or Skywalker). I'm still struggling with the idea of making this retractable, or having retractable landing gears.  (I want it to be on the bottom)
