When I saw this thing move, I could hardly believe my eyes...

Wow, awesome, thanks for blogging this!
This started off as a "quick and simple" project, but I got a bit carried away while designing it :-)

@Max: no, sorry not yet - I am working on it, but needed to attend to other things. Also, I need to set up the plane first. Stay tuned!

I was wondering if that top servo has a metal bearing? I purchased the entire kit (thank BTW), but I'm not sure where to get a hold of a suitable bearing (metal ring visible in video) for the pan servo.

Have you tried contacting Felix?

Maybe via

Good luck, and be sure to send us videos of the unit in action..

The bearing for the pan axis is a fairly standard ball bearing, 16mm outer and 8mm inner diameter (total overkill, I know....). Hobbyking sells these (I think as helicopter spare parts), maybe search for it. They should also be available from various online shops and ebay sellers, or maybe even in a local engineering supplies shop.

Where can I purchase one of these? Any guide to budget gimal controllers, joysticks, servos, etc?
