Mount the camera securely to a portion of the plane that does not vibrate or oscillate in flight... the fuse is a good place usually. I use tape with a pad of bubble wrap between the camera and fuselage as a cushion. Velcro, by itself, can hold a motor with a lot of force to remove it, but is not necessarily good at holding the camera steady if there are vibrations in the power system.
Here is the video. The camera is being held on by velcro right behind the prop. Any other suggestions? Thanks!
