Nice and Compact! That smaller (micro) KX2 Cam can be powered 5v-12v (great option).

The larger PnT will probably fit some cameras, check rangevideo website for KX-6 (mini PnT) and KX-2 (micro PnT).

They are designed around specific cameras: the KX1, KX2, and KX6. If your camera in question has the same dimensions as those listed, then you're in luck. If not, then you might persuade it to fit with some hacking, but to be honest I can't say. This PNT is brand new and not been out in the public long enough for people to test fit other cameras.

One of the potential problems that worry me with these new mini gimbals like this one and the upcoming gimbal for the Foxtech V2 and V3, is the large moment put on the servo shaft in any sort of moderate to hard landing.

If you hit something, incl the ground hard enough to damage a servo shaft that will probably be the least of your concerns
I had a 0420 sitting on those $3 servos for many flights, even had some abrupt stops with no issues

Agreed. With this unit, I think that's a non issue...

I just received my Micro PnT... Design is perfect, nice and compact, only a little heavier than it may be. Camera (KX2) is not that good, worst are those black margins in corners, but still it's usable (any idea for replacement lenses?). But man, what is killing this are those servos. Camera movement is very jumpy, movement with headtracker is unnatural, you can almost count those movement steps - ek-ek-ek-ek...

And don't be fooled by "120 degrees" description on RVOSD website - they are standard 90 degree servos, which range can be extended on receiver to 120 degree.

I'm quite dissapointed, without replacing servos is this PnT useless... Can anyone recommend better ones which will fit?

I'm assuming they are analog servos?

If so, just get a similar torque rating and physical size digital. Should at least double the resolution and fidelity of movement

There are absolutely no marking on them, but yes, they don't sound like digital. I'll try to find some..

Thumbs up boopidoo.

I love it. Will get one for my new glider in combination with the kx6 and a fatshark trinity tracker.

Real nice design.

I m just curious about the play...
