Pan/Tilt Mount

Motorized Pan/Tilt mount for antenna tracking and similar applications.

Status: Prototype

Updated: 12 June 2011


This Pan/Tilt mount was designed for active antenna tracking in Unmanned/FPV Aerial Vehicle applications.  It is expected to be able to swing two, high-gain yagi antennas; weighing approximately 5kg.  Other designs that are capable of this load are substantially over spec’d and therefore prohibitively expensive for hobbyist and research applications.

This design is intended to be a cheap yet functional mount to suit the needs of hobbyist FPV pilots and research teams working with UAVs.
