Ultra light cam mount


#1

Here’s my super light, and cheap cam mount.
Thought I’d share this with the community, take one zip tie, cut a slit, drill two screw holes, mount cam on top or as low rider.
Weight 0.2g cost???

#3

@Chaotix That’s bloody brilliant! :star_struck:


#6

Ha! I love it! That’s awesome.


#7

Keep up the good fight, Sir!
Now we wait for Banggood to copy it, and sell it on their web store :joy:

Thats cool… I mount my cameras between the hoops and love the low profile and is easier for me to judge… I usually scuff the hoops a bit then hot glue into place. Usually stands up to decent impacts.

Very creative, tidy solution. Will definitely try it next time I rebuild a whoop. Cheers!


#10

Wow. Very creative and looks great. I need this solution! My low rider mount has always been a ziptie hotglued to the ducts and hot glued my cam on it. I will try it today!


#11

Great idea! I’m excited to try this out! I wonder what the longevity will be like?


#12

Has anyone ever tried those super tiny hair rubber bands, the kind used for braiding hair?

I’ve been using them on my stock e011 frame and I think they’re working pretty good. They hold tight, and provide flex on impact. An ocassional quick flip forward after a crash may be required (top mount), which is cool with me while figuring out my noob piloting skillz :sunglasses:

Only thing I’m still working out is my low pro mount. As I improve, I need more angle! This pic shows my most solid mount, which pulls the angle WAY too low. I either figure out how to wedge it up, or try a more narrow camera rig :+1:

My antenna is tied down cuz its about to fall off :smile:

Elastic bands don’t like heat and vtx heat up in use, in flight failures are common with elastic band mounts.


#14

Ah, good point! I’ll try out the zip tie idea this weekend.

Thanks!


#15

Its simple and efficient. I used same solution but think, left one or glued one is better solution on a long run.

Sooo much better!


I didn’t have a black zip tie at the size I could cut straight down the center, so I used a sharpie :smile:
If I can manage to get a straight cut down my smaller sized tie, then I’ll go that route at some point.
