Default Edge 540 88' Goldwing with a gopro on wing tip

Hello, it's my first post here. Here is a video made with a Gopro on the wing tip of an Edge 540 Goldwing with a DLE55. Happy with the result, but a lot of vibrations of course.
Afraid before the take off because of the high balsa mount. I expected to see the airplane yawed to the right [&:] But it was ok.

I didn't take any pics on the airfield, but I did some in my flat, so imagine it with a lot a lot of scotch tape . Not a strong one, to no destroy the covering film [&:]. I added a counterweight on the left wing tip.

The mount looked pretty good and light. We probably don`t realize how much our wings flex but it`s a good thing they do. I`ll bet it will help to have some weight on the left wing. Thanks for posting the pics. Like I said very good video.
