wing top down camera view


Recommended Posts

Hi Dave.

I used my gopro hd.

But I was aware it seemed heavy. So mount it half way from leading edge toward trailing edge, so as not to invite a frontal collapse.

I used the mounting plate that comes with the gopro. Its a square plastic 4" mount that is part of the protective case the camera is delivered in. Luckily it has the same mount socket as all the other mounts. I then put the plate inside the wing and carefully mounted the camera through from the bottom of the wing pinching the wing onto the mount. It only pinches a very small amount of wing and sits there nicely. There was no creasing after removal.

(2mins 45 secs in)

Now the cover my arse bit.

Obviously this may not be a good idea mounting something on the underside of the wing. May cause its flight charateristics to change. Dont blame me if something happens.

Anyways it worked for me.
