Camera With Servo

I have the camera mounted on a servo for playing with color tracking. When i move the color (red) in front of the camera, it turns completely away from it, if i again move in from it will do a 180 and face in the opposite direction. I tried changing some options, and even setting the limit (50-90) to how far it would move, but still does the same thing. Ive adjusted to Brightness and size, as well not being sure if that would have an affect on things.
I did track it a few times, but then back to the, NOPE! not looking at that lol
Any ideas?

Did you try inverting the servos in the camera tracking control settings?.... Also try setting the camera grid lines to default....

sometimes it will twitch a few degrees, just enough so the color isn't in the window, and other times it will go nearly 180

Might have it. I powered down again, and it seems to be ok, 3rd time i tried rebooting. Not twitchy at all and following correctly.

I have noticed that once you do a servo release sometimes things go wonky until you reset servo speed again as well...

and If the object is too close it can get twitchy...

Good tip to remember:) Every problem is a chance to learn. I was maybe 2.5' from it with a red pen.
