      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.
