390 Degree Geared Pan and Tilt


This project is really an extension of my earlier Forward Offset Pan & Tilt and my recent Lightweight Pan and Tilt. The Lightweight P&T used printed gears and this unit uses "Store Bought" Acetyl gears which (for me) work much more smoothly. Built to the below specs, it will turn 390 degrees and tilt 110 degrees total. It is designed around the Turnigy™ TGY-R5180MG 180 Degree Metal Gear Analog Servo and a pair of 32 pitch Acetyl gears from ServoCity. It is a bit more robust and with the new gears much smoother. It will cover the entire 390 degree sweep with standard servo output of 1000µs to 2000µs and centers very well.

So, here is my 390 degree Pan & Tilt

390 degrees rotation and light weight!
