Lynxmotion Large Pan / Tilt Kit Weight Limit

Does anyone know the weight limit for the Lynxmotion Large Pan / Tilt Kit?

@redwhiteanddead Welcome to the RobotShop Community.

The weight limit depends on the angle and location of the center of mass of the payload. The 805 servo can provide a theoretical maximum of 24.7kg-cm of torque.
Torque = distance from axis of rotation to center of mass of object x mass of object
ex. If the center of mass of the object is 10cmaway from the axis of rotation, the max weight would be 24.7kg-cm / 10cm = 2.47Kg.
Considering the inefficiencies of the servo, it might actually only be able to lift around 70% of this.
