AntennaTracker maintainer hardware [Approved]

Topic: Antenna Tracker hardware

Proposal type: Hardware [X] , Software [ ] , Other [ ] : _________________

Description: AntennaTracker doesn’t currently have a vehicle maintainer. I’m proposing to take that on, but I do need a representative piece of hardware for it. The pan/tilt mechanism below would appear to be suitable.

I also need an autopilot to go onboard. I’m hoping some ArduPilot partner might be interested in sending an autopilot to me for this purpose - failing that I’m thinking something like a MiniPix could be added to this proposal; other options like a Cube or a PixRacer seem to be overkill for this application. For reference, a MiniPix would add ~$US60 to this proposal.

I also blame MdB for this.

Planned amount $$ (USD): 120

Estimated time for completion: days
