Servo on electronics chassis


#1

The kitbom servo is this one: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__9816__Hitec_HS_65MG_Micro_Metal_Gear_Servo_1_8kg_12g_0_14sec.html

I'm seeing easy availability of this one for 1/5 the cost on ebay with free shipping:

It looks a little heavier and maybe a little slower. Any thoughts?

The servo only needs to rotate the electronics assembly to orient the camera. I don’t think a super-reactive servo is needed :slight_smile:
Just remember to change the dimensions of the servo plate to match the different dimensions of the servo.
