  Simple 9g Servo Pan & Tilt


After building the Simple Pan & Tilt gimbal I saw that it would be nice to get some forward shift as the camera tilted down. So, I took the models from that small project and modified them to get some forward shift. With the addition of a linkage, this set-up is not as "solid" as the centered version but it seems to work OK.
