Remote 3 Axis Camera Head with motion control

I`ve been wanting to build a mid size remote controlled camera head that has 3 axis and can be computer controlled and repeat its motion. I have a few RC helicopters that we build very basic 2 axis heads on, that work with servos and have a gyro to keep level.

The idea would be for it to rotate at about 300 degrees per second and to be able to feater in and out the motin for it to be smooth. I would also like to try to put some gyros on it, to stabilize it if it is free swinging on the back of a car or helicopter.
