    Link to my recently built cable cam rig with both forward/reverse, and panning feature. You can build this in your garage for under $300.

    Cheaper alternative I made for ~ $40

    Pretty sweet. It's not nearly as full featured, but here is one I built recently with an adjustable brake for controlling downhill speed. For following riders climbing uphill, I just tied my fishing line to the system and reeled it uphill with my bass fishing rig.

    I already had skateboard wheels lying around, but the rest of the stuff was purchsed and it came in well under $50.
