3. 2x Servo Motors

4. 1x Breadboard

5. 12x Jumper Cables

6. USB Power Cord

Step 2: Connecting Servos

Servo 1:

Connect Ground(Brown) To ground on Breadboard

Connect Power(Red) To Power on Breadboard

Connect Imput(orange) To Pin 9

Servo 2:

Connect Ground(Brown) To ground on Breadboard

Connect Power(Red) To Power on Breadboard

Connect Imput(Orange) To Pin 10

Step 3: Connecting Joystick

1.Connect Ground On Joystick To Ground on Arduino

2.Connect +5V to To Power on Breadboard

3.Connect VRx to A1

4.Connect VRy to A0

Step 4: Connecting Arduino to Breadboard

1. Connect 5V To Power on Breadboard

2.Connect Ground To Ground on Breadboard

Step 5: Code

Open with Arduino IDE and you are good to go!

Just a note, in the code, this line :

VerticalServo.write(180-HorizontalServoPosition);

should be : VerticalServo.write(180-VerticalServoPosition);

Great Job on this project..

Just a quick note; if any analog connection is open, both servos will respond to the one connected (A0,A1).
