Payload roll-stabilizer for spinning rocket

Rather than trying to roll stabilize a rocket it is sometimes desirable to let the rocket rotate around its length axis and then counter-rotate the payload section.
This device is a quick'n dirty prototype to explore this.

  1. Very nice, You just figured out how to control a PWM servo with arduimu V3.
    I just wish i could use it in my 2 axis camera guimbal.
    would be asking too much for you to share this code?

  2. Looks like you have it programmed to point north all the time. I could use this for my model rockets. Are you willing to provide a list of parts, schematic and code? I would love to build this to counter the roll axis spin on my rockets.
