Lunchbox pains & wishlist

It's quite clear that the lunchbox steering has been hunting, ever since the encounter with Asian capitalism. A rear wheel was damaged, so it bounces up & down. This makes the gyro oscillate, which makes the steering erratic. Its damaged state is a good time to try more aggressive techniques of locking the tires to the wheels.

The lion kingdom started seriously considering installing a camera & sound system for making eye level vlogs from the vehicle. 10 mile runs can get extremely boring & a lot of thoughts come through a lion's mind. It would be a much smaller camera than a gopro, suspended by a guywired carbon fiber rod. There are now lots of keychain cameras advertising "1080p" for under $40. Wireless headset microphones are now under $50.

Then of course, there's the DJI Mavic. There is a way to make a 1 handed remote control for it & fix the altitude so it follows an athlete semi autonomously. It would be 20 minutes at a time, but enough to capture a speed mile. There wouldn't be a way to drive a ground vehicle simultaneously. The Mavic would need to accurately track a speed. For $1000, the video would be watched by 20 people.
