    Do you use pan, tilt or both?

    I have pan and tilt on my Deep Reaper but am re-thinking the usefulness of it, and also need a spare channel for other stuff. I realised I use tilt more often than pan, to look straight down.
    So, seeing as polls are fun to click, what do you use most?

    I only use pan on my funjet but I might use the tilt aswell on my twinstar some day.
    I've ordered a videoswitcher for my funjet and have a 1gram camera that I have been thinking of having a rearview view so to speak

    Currently none although tilt would be handy on my ZII just to look down when flying high.

    I'm planning to use tilt on my soon-to-be TBS discovery...

    I'm also planning to add tilt to my HT-FPV quad when the bits and pieces arrive. That seems useful on a quad with a stable hover.

    I suppose the use of pan or tilt depends on the type of flying you do more often. Tilt at high altitudes make sense, while pan with low altitude flights could be useful, although there's not much time to look around when dodging trees...

    Right now my deep reaper has pan and my popwing that I am building has tilt only. I rarely use the pan on my deep reaper, though when my friend gets his in the air and we start doing some flying together I think that it would be useful to "find" him in the sky.

    On my wing i have pan and only use it once in a while if i'm just taking a look around or try to keep it on a fixed point as i circle.
    On my previous plane i had pan and tilt.
    The plane was 4 ch and to get tilt i ran a heli set up in the tx,so to have pan a couple switches had to be flipped then the throttle stick controlled tilt ,rudder stick pan.
    Ended up not really using tilt though and just mostly used pan.

    The pan servo on my wing right now is a big old Futaba S30003 with a resistor mod for 180* travel,it's probably a larger servo than most use for pan but it works.
    It is nice to look to look side to side up there.

    Recep-
    Is that a GoPro? Are you flying with it, or do you just have it slaved to the same P/T that your flight cam is on? That looks like a fun setup!

    I put a pan setup on 2 planes and have since removed them after repeatedly breaking both.
    Apparently I like to crash into things more than look around while flying high. lol
