You all were kind enough to help us mount the mini servo. Now my team is struggling with mounting the camera in a way that it doesn't wiggle. Would anyone be willing to share some pictures of how they have done this? Thank you!

We managed one! But I'm still all ears if someone wants to share. For anyone else wondering, we used the screw from the camera through lego round plates.

How well does that hold? For us it is still not very stable. How do you prevent it from rotating up and down?
I am just a programmer/leader on my team so I do not do much with building. I would like to give them some advice though on this as they have been having a lot of problems with it.

We have posted a picture of a camera mount on our website if you are interested. (normanadvanced.com) It is under development or resources depending on if we have gotten around to changing the name when you access the site. The base doesn't move on ours at all, but we allow the top to rotate around some so that we can calibrate before rounds and after it gets bumped around in transit to the tournent.
