This is a great little mount. Very light weight and very efficiently designed. It is perfect for the camera pictured in the photos above. I purchased a 1/3-inch Sony CCD Video Camera 700TV Lines F1.2. and this camera uses a large 6mm lens. The camera sticks out pretty far from the centerline of the mount and makes it difficult to mount in a small ball turret like the one used on the MQ-9. I would like to see a mount design similar to the one pictured but with the tilt centerline moved about 15mm forward of the camera board so the camera can rotate inside a ball turret more effectively around the CG of the camera. This would mean the mounting card would need to have a hole in it to allow the lens to pass thru. You would also need a additional mount plate for the servo. Just a suggestion.
A create small camera mount. The fibreglass part are fitting very good. Due to there is no assembly instruction available, I did a small build log: www.link The mount is usable for cameras that are not wider than a 9gr Servo.

Nice unit. Light and strong. Easy to assemble, and other servos can be used with little modification.
Will get another for my FPV planes.

Fun stuff, could be used to make a search light :)
truely amazing after 3 year looking for the perfect setup HK made it, my head tracker is happy !! really well made nice ball bearing linkage very solid quality the only upgrade would be to screw the servo on the plate instead of glueing anyhow i made a circle hole in the plate pass the camera objectif in and use double side servo tape at the rear of the camera for the servo mount
