This is the Digital Bird pan Tilt head part 2 of the Digital Bird motion control system. Part1 was the Digital Bird Dual action camera slider.
Coming up very soon will be the DIgital Bird video Turntable followed by the focus motor for the pan tilt head. All parts of the system are WIFI linked and work together or independently to provide a comprehensive motion control system. The system has taken almost two years to develop and has come at some cost. Your support in purchasing the kits is much appreciated and ensures that the system will continue to be developed and supported.
Many thanks to all those who have already joined the project with the slider. There have been many updates along the way but know that the system has been fully ported over to the ESP32 things will begin to settle down to a solid system.

The Pan Tilt Head can be used either with the other System parts or on its own mounted to a tripod.
