Very cool! So there are no internal modifications to the servo? How much do the added parts weigh?

BTW, a little off topic, but I'm surprised you mounted the camera on the same side as the muffler. Wouldn't it be better to put the camera on the other wing, away from the exhaust/oil/fumes/etc.?

Hi
The only modifications to the servo are two holes drilled in the top casing to attach the gearbox, i shall have to measure the weight.
It is quite light, the top and bottom plates are made from carbon fibre and the spacers are aluminium. it is also fully ballraced and has
high quality machined gears, i can supply a list of parts / suppliers for anyone interested.

PS about the muffler, yes i agree the other side would have been better but this said no oil as yet has been found on the lense :)
I designed it to be compact as it is going on my easystar, just need some decent weather to give it a good test.

Regards,

Scott

Hi Scott,

I really like the 360 servo, I could see that I will be trying to do one of these. What parts did you use then? It looks really well done. B)

Andy.

Would like to know as well where you got all the parts. I need to make a really sturdy mount for my FPV car as it has a lot of vibrations, and so far I have been unable to remove the vibrations from the camera pan/tilt system. This looks much more sturdy than what I've got so far.
