The controller will rotate your GoPro over a set angle for a set duration or will rotate you GoPro for a full rotation for a set duration.
This project is based on the original instructable by Tyler Winegarner See instructable here and also from Mark Wheeler’s version of Tyler Winegarner’s instructable See Mark Wheeler’s instructable here or his web site here .
My instructable combines software and hardware from both versions as well as adding some different build and control options of my own. further details on my web site.
I have added code for a 4×20 I2C LCD display and switches rather than the SainSmart LCD Keypad Shield. I have also removed the Arduino UNO shield and replaced it with an Arduino Atmega 328 mounted on vero board. Full schematics and vero board layouts included.
The Arduino controls a Geared Stepper Motor 28BYJ-48 via a ULN2003 Stepper Motor Driver Board. The 4×20 I2C LCD display and 5 micro switches form the interface to the Arduino. The controller has a Manfrotto 200PL-14 quick release tripod mount for attachment to my tripod and other mounting hardware fitted with a Manfrotto 323 Quick Release Clamp Adapter. Power is provided by a 50000mah USB Power Bank Battery Pack.
General parts list.
I tried to use items I had left over from other projects to keep the cost down. Ebay items in links may only be available for short periods if the links are not there try a search for the items instead.
