Description: This pan/tilt bracket consists of two brackets and all the hardware you need to attach them to make a pan/tilt mechanism using two servo motors. We recommend our small servo motors listed below.
Note: Servos are not included. The sub-micro servo size works for these mounts.
Based on 2 ratings:
It’s somewhat brittle. The inset spacer piece (smaller third metal piece) wasn’t the right size for the servo I had, and when I tried to bend it a bit, it nearly cracked. I managed to get everything together and it works well, so ultimately no complaints.
I had a hard time following the assembly guide partly because it is not specific enough (for example exactly which holes the “self tapping” screws go into the servo horns). I still have not gotten the tilt function just right and it sounds like the tilt servo is being strained. I also found that getting the screws into the servo horns at exactly the right angle is both very important and very difficulty. Use a magnifying lens to help do that!
Overall, I think this product would be very rewarding once assembled. I still have to get there….
