Hello wise board of SMA!
I am planing to make simple moco unit with Arduino system. I got great help from previous post about the subject and from Simon Tytherleighs comments.Things have developped plesant ways since last time I looked to this subject. Seems that it is possible to do system with ~400€!
One thing what puzzles me is bearings of pan and tilt head. I am planning to make U shaped one.
Have you used some axial ball bearing for Pan? Maybe something like this:
Or do you have it without any bearings, just wax or something?
How about Tilt?
Thank you Simon for all good info! I really appreciate it. It is long process to figure all things out from scratch. I think that I am ready to order the parts now.
I will post some results when i get so far.
Glad to be of help. Good luck! It is quite a challenge, but very satisfying once you get it going. Expect to have to modify things a little to improve them as you go. I look forward to seeing your progress. Go Tatu!
