Default Cheap lightweight Keychain Camera mount for Hobbyzone Champ

I put a tab of Velcro just behind the battery compartment and as far back as possible on the camera. Then I rolled a business card to make a sleeve and to act as a shim to provide some downward angle. Taped the sleeve into place and cut the tape away in front of the lans. Fed some piano wire thru the sleeve, bent sme offsets to clear the wheel pants and hooks to attach the rubber band to. Pretty crude but lightweight and you can pull the camera away from the velcro to get to the battery connector.

Is anyone else mounting a camera to a Champ? How are you mounting it? What camera are you using? This thing weighs 1/2 as much as the plane.
