Hi all,

Now the elevated platform for the pan/tilt camera setup.

Baseplate fabricated from 0.7mm sheet aluminium, barely thick enough but it does help keep the weight down.

U-bracket from 1.5mm flat alu bar. Could have been thinner but it's what I had to hand.

The servo is elevated on 10mm pillars in order to have the camera poke it's nose over the front cowl. I like to have a clearer view of forward and down. Note:- My glue gun gets some work to add some rigidity on the underside of the servo, also stops the screws working loose.

The baseplate is held in place using duct tape, yellow of course to match the plane!

Note:- The tilt servo will be attached to the back of the camera (KX-191) itself, but more of that later.
