I've gone back to using a Gimbal. I now use a upgraded mini DSLR one. The smaller Go-Pro one use to sometimes get upset with the camera cable when I use to use it and had a upgraded one sitting around which I never used up until recently. Works well - now no weird tracking issues :-).
Video below of me testing it out to gimbal failure, but only for a second before it re-acquired. The Gimbal PID although was not setup for such violent motion - so may revisit the Gimbal PID setup if I think it is necessary, but the ride was stupid rough and not something I would normally do .. More details in my other thread.
The sim is getting a big upgrade . In part as follows: New sim shell, 4 x Sabertooth 2 x 60s, new power supply setup (big Deep Cycle Battery), DD wheel (small Midge), New HOTAS (WartHog), New G-system (Ballscrew based system), Handbrake, sequential Shifter, Motor Cooling, and latest 1280 from the Kickstarter. Plus lots of other small upgrades.

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
