8000 4S FPV Platform

Thought I might step out of the shadows are share our custom 80004S FPV/Battery platform. We put our heads together a while back and decided to design our own version which addressed the issues that we were finding with the current available setups. And the best part is the CG is spot on, there’s need to add any extra weight
We made three versions to accommodate Hero3, Hero3 Hard Case and Hero2. The Hero 3 Hard Case uses the Helmet Mount without the need to glue or damage it and allow the camera to Pivot 90deg

Nicely done, how much for the hard case GP3 version? Do you have any pics of the tray installed? Also, is the hard case version far enough back to not enter into the FPV camera view?

All three platforms are $50AU ($44US at todays exchange rate). The GP Hard Case does not enter FPV field of view, unless it's facing downwards & it's only the very edge.
Our test Zephyr II was a pre built ebay purchase (which had seen some rough times) so please excuse the colour combination (not our choice). We have made a few minor changes to the platform to the one which is shown in the photos.
For GP Hard Case you need to supply your own helmet mount which is included with all GoPro's new. We include a conversion kit to allow it to be mounted to the platform. The Kit includes everything else needed, such as the velcro for batteries/GoPro and rare earth magnets.

Please can you tell me how I can order one of these gopro3 mounts and 8000mah battery bays. This is a fantastic idea and initiative
