Hey guys, we built an airsoft turret that is controlled from an android smartphone!
We use wifi as the interface and the gun is globally accessible through our webserver!
Check it out the build details!:
I'd be happy to answer any questions!
I would like to build a similar camera and BB gun combo. So it's a great help you posted this! Thanks :)
You say you are using hobby servos, which ones specifically so I can look up datasheet?
I plan to put mine on a robot rover controlled by a Dell mini web-book. To save on costs I'm using jeelabs RF12 modules which have a 100m range for rover control, however the IP camera can be operated over the Internet wherever there is a wireless connection.
I'm using storageoptions day-night IP camera with motion sensor and a low power laser to aid sighting remotely. The bb gun will be a an UZI style electric SMG for remote mobile-mayhem!
The pan/tilt mechanism we used was purchased from servocity.com: http://servocity.com/html/spt200_pan___tilt_system.html (http://servocity.com/html/spt200_pan___tilt_system.html)
We wound up going with the servos suggested for a 2lb load: http://servocity.com/html/hs-985mg_super_torque.html (http://servocity.com/html/hs-985mg_super_torque.html)
Best of luck with your project! Let me know if you have any other questions!
That is awesome! Nice work!
I will definitely put an airsoft turret on my UGV in the future. XD
Thats pretty awesome nice work.
How did you go about controlling the trigger electronically?
It seems like it is with a relay.
