    Hi! I am trying to make a remote controlled camera to attach to the bottom of my drone. What I want is a control on my drone remote, that allows me to control the tilt of the camera. So i can make it look straight down and straight ahead and anywhere in between.

    So what I need to be able to do is have some way of slowly spinning a motor on the drone - by remote control. The motor and circuit have to be quite small, and weigh under 20 grams ideally (don't know if that is possible). Also, it has to have quite a large range, around 10-50 meters.

    Can anyone direct me to where I can buy remote control motors, or help me at all? I'm quite new to electronics and stuff like that, so I may need a bit more detail/guidance.

    Thanks!

    A pan tilt device for FPV is available on Ebay as well as others, already supplied with a pair of mini servos for around $6.00.

    Either control pan/tilt via spare rc channel of get a bit more adventurous and look at making your own head tracker.

    Guess it depends how much experience you have with electronics.
