Torque Video:  twisted filmmaking

At the Hoboken MakerBar I recorded the first test footage with the Trossen Robotics WidowX Robotic Turret. This turret is the testing platform for my planned video production-quality robotic turret for small cameras. The footage was recorded with the GoPro Hero3 Black camera (1080p59.97 Protune) in a workshop with somewhat poor lighting.

Five minutes later we had a intermittent problem with the pan servo and we completely disassembled the entire thing including taking the servo apart to see if we could figure out what went wrong. It was hot to the touch, smelled a little toasted but the gears did not seem to be stripped.

Thanks to Mike Lowry and Travis Jones for helping with testing and troubleshooting.
