You could do it yourself using heading hold mode with 2 Futaba heli gyros or one 2 axis Futaba airplane gyro stabilizing servo driven camera platform...
Commercial types as seen on news helicopters would cost lots and lots of $$$ ...
I've been wondering about this also...
I was thinking if it was possible to use a FMA Co-pilot for pitch and roll stability and a heading hold gyro for the yaw axis? I have not had a chance to play around with a co-pilot. Does anybody have any thoughts on this?
I remember seeing a paper on horizon sensing where the sensor directly controlled the flight surfaces to keep the sensor level and two servos would actually pitch and bank the sensor.
