Looks like I may have to go with the GoPro 'cause I'm really liking the video I see from it. And yours is the second 960 vid I've seen on this forum. How did you mount it on the top of the fuselage? Anything special you placed on the fuse to place it flat? Thanks
Yeah it was just my stick input. because there have been a few times where the left wing i believe stalls from my hand launch and does a quick 180 in the other direction! so i keep it noes down on climb out. I actually have a video of the stall and ALMOST crash! lol ill put that up in youtube, also here are a few pics of my mount. I just took some of the left over foam from the box, used paper to kinda trace out the arc of the fusalage, and just cut it out with an exacto knife. And the pen marks are just how i found the CG and placed the camera right over top if it. Also just for securtiy i put a big rubber band around the camera and stretch it over the nose, just for a back up. And i just used a ton of super gold+ putting the flat foam piece and on the GoPro Mount. Ive seen another guy set up and he just used the flat piece that the GoPro comes mounted on in the box and just used bungee cords to strap it on. Its more of a non-perminant set up, but i like mine...
It would be great to see what you decide on!
