Skywalker Camera Gimbal

Last week I started one of the winter projects on my list.
I bought a Hobby King fiberglass Skywalker with the intentions of equipping it with a
2-axis camera gimbal designed to take downward photos. Right now I'm using an Ardupilot Mega board to stabilize the gimbal and it works very well.
Next plan is to fine tune the design and use a KK-2 board or the FY-30 A stabilizer .
However the Ardupilot mega board has the potential for position tracking so I can
have the camera always aimed a certain point on the ground during flight.
