Benchtop Demo of Mounted Camera Tilter


Here's a benchtop demo of the camera tilter mounted on an F450.

Benchtop Demo of Custom Camera Tilter on f450 (0 min 24 sec)


It's a Vector FC. The servo is connected to the Rx ch 8. the Rx is powered by the Vector PSU's 5v tap. Note that I measured the current draw of the Hitek HS5245MG servo before hand - and that it maxed out well under 1 amp during use. Even when I stalled it. This is important, cause the PSU 5v supply can drop if the draw exceeds 1 amp.
I mounted the tilter away from the center. That's why the battery was moved back from before - to keep the COG in the physical center of the quad - better for the FC that way.

Very cool mod, I'm using the (vector) in one of my 450 platforms & also use one in a CineTank L, I swear I will never purchase another Naza again (at least with GPS ) , I've had too many problems with flyaway ..
