Unhappy Tracking against a blank background

I have a footage of a chopper here at work which is shot against a blank sky with no information and definitely a camera move.....the first 10 frames and the last 20 something frames have trees in it. I wanted to track the chopper and get a proper camera move. I have to add smoke coming out of one of the corners of the chopper. I tried doing a single point stabilization around the place where the smoke is supposed to come out from in mocha, but the problem is that point/track would be static in x,y and z space.

Have you managed to get it right meanwhile?

Is there any chopper movement? Camera Movement?

Why don't you just do a single point track, emit smoke from the source and use wind, etc. to push and move the smoke away from the chopper that looks realistic. Are you running a simulation for the smoke too?
