Hallo Joseph,

the code is in sw/airborne/point.c. It was used in some other planes than the Twinstar, e.g. the Slicer. Just search for point.c in the airframes directory.

You have to set the servo range in the servos CAM_PAN/_TILT and the corresponding angles in the CAM PAN_* and TILT_* section. It needs some documentation...

Hi Guys,

my twinstar performs very well and i did about 100 flights in the last 3 weeks. Now i want to put a FPV camera on it with a 2 axis gimbal which is always used for fpv flights like that:

But i do not want to use a headtracker for turnig the servos but the paparazzi board (TWOG). Martin Müller did almost the same some years ago:

The camera should point always to the point of interest (POI) which is a waypoint in the flightplan file. Did anyone exept matin müller realized this or did someone know where i can find the code? Some small modification is not the problem but i´m not the best programmer so it would be a problem to code all by myself.

Thank you,
