The more obvious way to passively stabilise an oriented platform (so it always points one way) on a single line is to lift the platform through a gimballed centre... then set picavet cabling loops round the platform and to an array of pulleys on the ground.
Think I'm going to have to build a model of that to prove myself wrong again.
Surely someone knows better.Rod Read
