Yes, that's my idea. I'm thinking I'll experiment with a couple of old tx's I have lying around and take the rudder pot out of one. Maybe I can design some sort of cable operated aparatus to rotate the pot. I wish there was some simple way to hook up a single axis gyro directly to a servo.
Then the servo could be attached directly to the pot.
I've been moving into smaller quarters lately so along with that, expenses have gone up somewhat and I'd like to find some simple way (ie cheap
) to use what I have around here.
My camera only pans and I don't really care about tilt so there has to be some simple way to accomplish this.
