"That sounds very interesting. Essentially you need to have extra axes that can be simultaneously controlled. This is why I am badgering on about yaw and pitch, because if you eliminate a couple of axes, that frees up th channels for the model rig."

"I don't have a problem with the terms. Just curious as o how the axis is different from pan and tilt axes. Is the centre of rotation located slmewher else? Can these axes not be eliminated by making movements that combine the other axes?"

"I also saw that video of the Mandalorian. It was gratifying to see that, quite independently, they had opted for the same motors and bearings and much of the same solutions as myself. The only thing I was not so keen on is the 80/20 extrusions. The…"

"I'm mainly doing this because of what I saw about the model shooting for 'The Mandalorian'.  I want to try and explore the film-making that I remember from my youth."
