Question
How can I attach a camera to my Rg 65 Explorer?

I would like to attach a camera to my new Exporer ... anyone has exerience with mobius? I thought that only the lens shall be at open air using a cable exension and install all the "guts" at the haul.
Any other ideas?

Here is a method I used on my Dragon Force 65 for a keychain camera. Mounted with Velcro. Bracket is a piece of plastic bent to shape.

Video sample here:

Keychain is a $7 camera - you can waterproof it reasonably with some kitchen cling film,,,, and sail carefully!!! I have a couple of the keychain cameras, I have dunked them a little (fresh water) a few times and they mostly survive...

Have a look here at post #63:

I plan on making a mount for my newly purchased DF65 as well (the boom cam is nice, but gets a little shakey).

Here's a link to one of my vids, using a mobius camera inside a JooVu waterproof case. Very pleased with the setup

It is crudely attached with electrical tape and a lead onto the backstay in case it was to fall off. Works well though, until I get a proper mount on it

808 #16 Keychain cam DF65 mount

Here's what I did on my DF65 - Argh-or-knot.
It's much lighter than a GoPro and easily removable if you want to race.
