In this lesson we show how to do a control system where we feedback a signal to the servos which is Proportional to the error. This allows a much faster response than our earlier system which was just based on a constant feedback value:

OK, this is the gear we are using in this lesson

I strongly suggest picking up an arduino nano, since it can plug directly into the breadboard, making a portable system more practical. You can pick one up here:

You Will Need Two of These HiTEC Servos

NOTE: I am no longer recommending the MG995 four pack of servos, as I have recently gotten several bad batches, so have moved to the HiTEC linked above.

Pan Tilt Brackets:

PC Board Power Supply (If you have the ELEGOO Kit, you already have this)

Good Wall Wart Power Plug for the Power Supply (if you dont have one)
