Piper Super Cub wing mount for Key Cam
I recently got a key cam #16 for areal photography. While this tiny camera can be just attached by a strip of velcro, I thought a real camera mount makes it look nicer and will produce better movies due to better decoupling from vibrations and optimized camera angle. (And I was right! ) Made from carbon fiber with a total weight of 28g (incl. the camera):
The smaller one is the counter weight for the other wing.

Excellent idea! I just used a wedge of EPO foam with velcro on either side. One side attaches to the wing, the other to the camera. Your mount looks much better and is more streamlined! Nicely done.
Also, your video looks great. An excellent location for aerial video.

BTW The location for the video is my home field near
the hills in the background are part of the swabian alb
when you look closely you can even see Hohenneuffen castle:
If you like to compare the quality of the keycam #16 video to the (more expensive) Flight Cam HD 1080p results at the same location see
