GoPro on a EasyStar (How do you mount it)

Just thought I would ask. We can't keep a mount on the EasyStar. Anyone got a good way to do this.. Thanks for any help.

Look at #2042. His is on a bigger plane but you could do something like that, just not as high. Just high enough to get the front of the plane out of the picture. I think it is a firm carbon tube or rod glued clear through the plane with a camera mount attached. Good luck and be sure to show how you do it with some pictures!
Gee Whiz! I forgot the link! Sorry!

These are all I have.

There are 2 magnets epoxied to the bottom of the base and 2 epoxied into the fuselage. I put a rubber band around the fuselage and the base as extra security.

Simple, cheap and effective.

I cut about two inches of the nose. I mount the Gopro with 3M Dual lock, I also use some electrical tape for extra security. Lipo goes in the body under the wing for balance. I kept the nose for when I fly the EZ* without Gopro.
