So my sister managed to break a pan and tilt camera mount and naturally thought daddy can fix this.
After sitting on my dads workshop bench for a while he had a go at it and couldn't work out how to fix it so it was passed on to me as broken.
So I decided to hang the current circuit board and lets make this thing arduino compatible and while I am at it lets make it wireless :-)
In preparation for this I had to work out which wires were for the motors and which were for the internal batteries.
I am working with one of these: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/64399-REG/Bescor_MP101_MP_101_Motorized_Pan_Head.html 

Your instructable is very interesting. That pan &amp; tilt gear is a good product, and a San Francisco inventor, <a href="https://twitter.com/donfrench" rel="nofollow">Don French</a>, already modified it to commercialize as a panoramic motorized head. I bought one from him and it works good as gear to make time-lapse movies. It doesn't work good as panorama gear because it measures steps referring to the time intervals, instead that to an optical or mechanical scale.<br> It also seems to exist a similar version <a href="http://luksa.com/panoramic-programmable-pantilt-head.aspx" rel="nofollow">here</a>, but I hadn't the opportunity to try it.<br> It will be very interesting interface it with Arduino! Thanks!
