New AutoKAP rig using the ClickPAN-PRO
When James Gentles closed his business back in January he kindly gave me a ClickPAN-PRO. All my rigs have been radio-controlled since my very early days in KAP and rather than convert an existing R/C rig I decided to build a new one. Rather than design it from scratch I adapted the design of my S100 rig - a 3D-printed one, seen here:
The basic rig is a single part with slots for the pan and tilt servos as well as holes for the two axles, a hole for the on/off switch and lugs to keep the 5v battery in place, seen here:
Here are some photos of the two rigs with the R/C rig printed in red and the AutoKAP rig printed in blue. Note that the RC rig has a 5.8GHz video transmitter fitted in a slot in the rig (hence the extra cable going to the S100).
If anyone is interested I can make the 3D design available. The servo slots are designed for standard micro-servos.
