Hat Cam

After my first video... knew there was a problem
because the plane was at the far top of the video,
and disappearing sometimes because the camera
was not aimed high enough. Shown is my 20 degree
riser block solution for keeping the model centered
in the video frame.

Mobius shows a hat rig on their website
without an angled visor mount.

So, after a few tries, I found a 20 degree
wood block, through-bolted to the Mobius
mounting plate worked best for me.

Hundreds of videos later and this is my current
preferred setup.

The Mini was added using velcro. I can fly
the Mini on the plane or shoot a backup video
from the hat. The settings can be changed in each.
You could have the mini doing time lapse,
wide angle, zoom, or other settings.

All hats/visors fit differently so best to
calculate each one separately.
