Gigio (udrones) has added a great tutorial to the manual on how to add a pan-tilt camera mount to ArduCopter using Hobbyking parts. Total cost: about $57. Perfect for a GoPro camera.
AC2 defaults to autostabilizing the camera (tilt/roll servo outputs are one Out 5 and Out 6). We'll be adding the ability to automatically track a position on the ground soon.
Slightly out of topic, but how to enable camera stabilization on ACM 2.23, or is it enabled by default....and to which pins should i connect my pan and tilt servos......
Nice! and not too expensive...
Would be nice to add what servo is recommended for the go pro type of weight... HK says a 9g servo but I guess we want a nice strong one with precision to ensure things are smooth...
And on the legs, are they strong enough to take a hard landing? just want to know if you need to be an expert pilot to fit these on the quad. I still land pretty hard from time to times!
Amit, if all you want to do is manual control of the tilt/pitch, just connect those servos to the desired channels on your RC recevier. If you want the code to do it, you can see code samples here:
