Anyone experience with this tool

or has anyone alternatives.

Might be a cost effective and easy alternative to heliccopter panos no?

Definitely Helicopter or plane
Camera hanging certainly with a rope or a fixed length metal device
Pano = stitched

How to. Perhaps have to look in aerial photography. check for it on the forum under websites. I had an interesting link from texas I guess. Have to check.

This set up is only meant for small, lightweight 'point & shoot' cameras - I wouldn't trust it with a heavier DSLR & Fisheye lens combo (as well as the added weight of the tilt/pan mechanism. Also, I'd guess a bit 'hit & miss' with remote capture...?
