Update Oct 20, 2012: I’m holding this project off. I had a few questions about the pan/tilt speed of the Arduino remote vs the original remote. The pan/tilt speed is reduced, but because we’re changing the original values designed for the motors, it could cause the motors to stall.
We’ve been using the Arduino Uno and Bescor MP-101 for a while now, and I’ve learned a lot, but now I’m ready to develop a Bescor Joystick Remote without the Arduino Uno. If things come together with a little help and support, I want to implement a wireless solution using a smart phone. In the meantime, I want to thank those of you for letting me see your cool pan/tilt projects.
