Actually just the gimbal base would be stabilized in horizontal and azimuth as the aircraft pitches, rolls and yaes. The camera mount/gimbal would move about on the stabilized base. The down side is the number of servos/actuators needed and the limited range of motion.

Another possible solution is to use machine vision techniques using a computer to lockon to an image and that computer pan, tilt, and rolls the camera.

I'm only throwing out brain farts here. I haven't put any real thought into this.
