Pan & Tilt setups


Pan & Tilt setups

I've had a lot of peeps asking how I set up my P&T's, here's a handful of the many...

I use hot glue a lot, but please be aware I do not use the cheap art/hobby hot melt glue gun.
I use Bosch hot glue gun and genuine Bosch hot glue sticks.
Bosch hot glue not only is hotter, but it literally adheres better and is very resilient to hot summer sun.
The quality is night and day.

The Hitec servos are modded to rotate 180 degrees.
The difference in quality between the Henge type 260 degree servos is very obvious in the goggles, the cheap Henge servo steps with slow head tracker movements, where-as the Hitec servos are very smooth, no matter how slow the tracker movement registered.
