This is the structure for a panorama robot using a GoPro Hero camera.

Uses two R/C servo motors. The tilt servo (the top one) can be a regular cheap servo. For the bottom pan servo you need one that can rotate 360 degrees (for regular servos the range is limited to about 180 degrees). These are a little difficult to get by, I used this one:

Great project.

It is possible to modify a regular servo to rotate 360 degrees.

i did it many years ago.

My memory is not that great but I beleive all it required was cutting a lug off one of the gears and removing a rheostat.

But that will give you a continuous rotation servo, you loose the absolute positioning ability.

Nice work! I plan to make such panohead, but even more compact.

BTW, what controller are you using?

I'm using an STM32 ARM chip on a custom pcb. Looking forward to seeing your design!
