Duel Servo control with a wireless Xbox or TV Remote?
April 7, 2009
I own a 60' telescopic mast for taking elevated (aerial) photos. At the top, I have a robotic camera mount for the camera. 2 servos, one pan - one tilt.
At the moment, I'm using an RC 2.4 ghz transmitter/receiver to control the camera mount. It works fine, but it's a bit of a pain carrying the rc transmitter around.
I was hoping to lessen the "load" by using either an Xbox wireless controller, or a TV remote of some kind. I have a portable DVD player for a "live view" of the shot, so the range would only have to be 60' or so. However, please keep in mind I would be in the sun much of the time. So ..... Infrared?
Any ideas or links much appreciated.
