ARDUINO TIME LAPSE BRAIN // CONCEPT

I rebuilt the electronics of the timelapse slider, added MIDI and put it in a small aluminium box.

It hosts:

-Arduino MICRO
-micro RC cars ESC
-MIDI-IN
-280 sized gearbox motor (~350:1)
-a pot
-an ON-OFF-ON buttonswitch
-eight LEDs as display

I started to design the PCBs, i wanted to use as many PCBs as possible, to clean up the design, and i ended up with three layers.

Together with a GoPro mount and a few servos, it can be everything from a superslow cable-dolly, to a normal automated dolly, that uses the motor to drive, one of the four servos to steer and use the other three servos for a 3-axis head.
