Ball Turret Cameras

BTC-18 Standard

Our Smallest Ball Turret Camera

The BTC-18 Ball Turret Camera features a rigid and ultra light composite chassis coupled with a high resolution color camera. The small size of this 18 mm ball turret and very light weight of 18 grams allows use of the camera in very small electric UAVs.

Extremely Lightweight

The BTC-18 weighs in at an incredible 18 grams out of the box.

Rugged Durability

The BTC-18 is constructed from composites and thermoplastics designed to withstand the roughest landing. The patented drive system utilizes a gear drive system for the pan axis and a coaxial drive for the tilt axis.

PWM Control

The BTC-18 is controlled through Pulse Width Modulation and is compatible with most Flight Controllers right out of the box. Control wires come with standard JST servo connections.

Calibrated Movements

The BTC-18 comes with a calibration sheet used to calibrate precise and repeatable motion. On the tilt axis it is capable of 90° of travel, while the pan axis is capable of 320° non continuous rotation.
