In this tutorial, I'll show you how to assemble pan/tilt for Arduino servos. This should take you about 20 minutes to fully assemble. In my next tutorial, I'll show you how to program these servos using Arduino for manual control using potentiometers & buttons.

How to Assemble Pan/Tilt for Arduino Servos
To start off, you'll need to build the Pan/Tilt Servo assembly. You can choose to build a 9g servo assembly for a smaller payload, or a Mg995 servo assembly for applications requiring greater torque. The assembly will be similar no matter which one you choose. For the purpose of this tutorial, we're going to use the 9g servo assembly.
First, grab one of the servos and the pan servo bracket (without the white servo horn). We're going to assemble the Tilt servo. You'll also need two long screws and two nuts. Pu…
