When I shoot from helicopter It's a charter and Iam in the back with the door off and a harness. I keep the camera strap around my neck and an assistant to handle the bag with other lenses, bodies, and batteries. That bag is kept closed so nothing goes flying out the door.

I try to fly in the very early morning hours when the atmosphere is at it's calmest or in the late afternoon into disk when the light is at it's best.

for stabilization, even with IS or VR,I don't use a gimbal but I do use a KenLab gyroscopic stabilizer. If you rent one make sure you get proper instruction on how to use it.

Good luck to you and I'll see you down the road,

All +1.  Gyro is a must.
