Ideal motor for my project? Answered
So I am building a pan and tilt boom rig for a camera. I have the basic idea down but I was wondering if I should use servos or stepper motors. My biggest concern is that when I stop the motor turning at any given angle, It won't rotate back down due to gravity. I am using arduino to process and a joy stick to control which motor turns and which direction. Also, as some additional advice, I was wondering how to control the speed with the joy stick, it runs off potentiometers.
