Is this the camera you have?

If so, I have a mount that could work with little modification. I typically make mounts for helicopters, but it would just be a mater of changing the hanger. Attached is a sample.

I use velcro to mount on planes works fine.

Crashland,
That mount is in the early stagesof develpement and will beabout 20.00, but it's designed to tilt the camera with adirect drive servo. If you don't want the tilt axis it will be about half that. I just need to know how you want to mount it to the wing. Screw placement, dimentions, etc. If your interested, PM me with the details and I'll design a custom mount for your application.

Once you come up with something let me know. I can do something like the rendering if you want in under the wing, or the other way around for on top.Joaquin

Just tape it to the wing. Thats all i do and I have a lot of successful flights with it. If you want to be extra safe, tie a safety string onto a wing strut and through the camera keychain hole.

I have a 3D printer and am going to print up a mount for my plane. If any one has any customs designs they want printed I can print them up. I may also print a few extra of my design to sell. Still designing it now, but should have something in the next week or so.

Currently the RepRap community is printing prominently ABS and PLA plastics. A few have started using polycarbonatesuccessfullybut a different extruder hotend is needed for it. With that said, I am currently only printing ABS and PLA.

You can find more info about the reprap community and printers at www.reprap.org

Here is video of a simple print (it's a little tool to help keep a book open when holding it):https://picasaweb.google.com/1050014...09784206558514

Is your Actioncam any different than the 808 cameras sold on eBay for ~$15?

Any camera that you are getting for $15 is not HD. Also does not include a memory card, car charger etc. We are just releasing a weatherproof cover, check it out! HERE(http://ped-products.com/index.php?di...product_id=146)
