Laser-Cut Slow Stick Camera Mount


I have been flying cameras for a few years now and I keep coming back to the design that goes under the CG, allows you to position the camera in any direction -- set it and forget it. I finally sat down last night and put my Home Depot paint stick style camera mount into CAD where I could get them laser cut. The added bonus here is the inter locking joints that add tons of strength to the joints. I always have people asking me... where did you get your mount... or how did you make it.

The mount will work with a camera that is 4" wide and the height is adjustable.

JTechLaser turned this one around for me in less than 8 hours. If there are some interest, I will make some available for sale.

UPDATE: I have some for sale now at: http://www.blueskyrc.com/index.php?m...&products_id=9

Wow, that top part looks very similar to the design I have for my Creative Vado HD camera.

No one have seen my design because I just today uploaded the pictures to my website, in other words the person who design that top part and I think alike .


Mine do not pivot left or right but is kinda similar

I just placed my order for one.
Question: Can the camera housing part rotate 90 degrees to enable tall photos rather than wide? Bill

Got your order! Thanks.

Answer: The camera can spin 360 and the angle of the camera can be adjusted. I imagine you can mount it to the stick mount how you may need. But it is not really designed to hold the camera long ways.

crd, you can order from http://www.blueskyrc.com

I sold them all, but I have another batch of 10 that I plan on having up on the site in the next few days. I hope before the weekend. They have been selling well so I plan on trying to keep them stocked.
Thanks!
