This took about three hours with the last one taken up by balancing. I've tried to get the center of gravity/balance at the pivot point on the top of the handle - I don't actually know if this is the right thing to do or not but it does seem to be remarkably effective - particularly when I was running with it. You could build this a dozen different ways out of as many different materials - I think a good gimbal/unijoint/ball joint and good balance are the two main things - the materials are probably not that important. I shot this in 720/50fps and rendered it to a 720 .wmv file. Probably needs a coat of matt black paint and then see if I can fit it to the buggy!
