Honestly, I did not use any counterbalance. Two considerations (or maybe 3). I put it on the upwind wing for landing, as you could see during taxi it didnt want to stay wings level without some aileron into the wind and silly me, I was concentrating on carrying my video camera rather than taxiing with aileron into wind. Second, the HD Gopro weighs very little without its protective case, so all I needed was two clicks of aileron trim to keep it level even at slow speeds. and 3, I had flight tested this install on my other Cub.

Three camera types used. One on the ground was a Flip Video Mino on a little flexible tripod. On the airplane, I just blenderm taped the Gopro to the wing about 3/4 down the span. For the HD Keycam, used blenderm tape to secure it on the other side. The third flight had no cameras onboard, so the flip footage does not show cameras connected to the aircraft. Even in cold weather, the blenderm works amazingly well to keep everything where I put it.

Thanks.
