It is a very exciting idea to be able to control a recording camera with the help of a remote control. You can certainly make a remotely controlled mount pan for your ordinary camera to tilt and pan just like a very expensive camera. The idea behind a radio controlled camera comes from the principle of remotely controlled toy cars. It is easy to replicate the steering and assembly of a toy car to come up with a remote that can control the tilt and pan of a security camera. You would require 2 and not one remote controlled toy car to be able to make a remote for your ordinary camera.
