Pan and Tilt Camera With ESP32-CAM L0Cost Robot Controller

There are lots of Pan and Tilt projects published online and this one has been written to demonstrate the L0Cost robot project which aims to provide robot designs which can be built for $20. The L0Cost robot controller has a basic inbuilt interface for common implementations and this is the basic two pin servo setup being used for a pan and tilt mechanism for the whole ESP32-CAM.

It’s shown with the basic lipo power supply module published as another instructable.
