I love using pan, but how to use tilt on radio?


Ok, I finally figured out a quick and easy pan setup (picture) its just a pz0420 with 2 square pieces of dollar tree foam board covered with uline packing tape (the camera doesn't get warm at all)... (tiny cutouts for osd and power/video plugs) and I hot glued it to a servo 4 way arm thingy. very solid. I use the rudder on my radio to control it.

Now that I got a taste of whats possible with moving the camera around I also want tilt, how do you guys control it on your radio? I have a futaba 9cap and can probably use the side thingys, but its not easy to center them (use expo?)

Or maybe I should just use throttle on those side thingys and use the throttle stick for camera only???

I use this but add another button to have pan or tilt on ... or both down to have both.

Precise control of servo is best

Not a 3 way switch but to be able to move digital sevo slowly or fast at will
