Most would use a mechanical gyro for this application. It helps to stabilize the roll axis or gimbal. See http://www.ken-lab.com/
The KS2 is the most commonly used.

In the photo below you can see a KS2 mounted to an airfoil system.

Flyboy is correct in everyway. Kenyon is number one in image stabilization which is why I worked with Bobbie Kenyon in stead of
using a basic helicopter gyro idea.

Go here and have a look. http://www.airfoilhelicam.com/airfoilpro.php

Also watch for the upgrade which is going to make anyone with a Pro1 even happier. Go with the KS-2 Gyro.

Hope this helps.

All I can say is you have to mount it correctly. It has to float on the C.G. tube and can't be mounted solid.

Not sure by any of your pics what you have so you might post a picture.
