    Fat Shark / RunCam Pan Tilt MOD.

    I'd thought I'd share this simple mod with you all. If you have a Fat Shark 5v Pan Tilt camera laying around that's toast but the Pan Tilt still works. Your in luck if you have RunCam camera or similar. No need to solder or change the connector. Just Plug & Play.

    I think the Pics show what needs to be done but if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    TIP: I had to sand and chamfer the white connector edge just a hair to slip into the RunCam mount. See pic.

    This is awesome. I have 2 FS mounts, but I put them aside because the cameras were junk IMO (700 TVL v2). Thanks for this!

    I've been using these pan tilts like this as well. Not quite as clean looking, I just hot glue the back of a board camera (PZ0420) to the existing camera mount and you're good to go!
    You can actually buy just the pan tilt without the crappy cmos cam.
