Tricopter GoPro Mount test - The street

I have tried a few ways to mount the GoPro on my tri with varying results. Of course the beauty of a multi-rotor is C of G is basically irrelevant (within reason).

This morning all I did was attach it to the longer mount and held that on with rubber bands sandwiching a small foam pad. (No moon gel or anything fancy) I thought that would allow less vibration transfer based on the fact the camera had it's own "inertia" so to speak.

Bottom line, I am pretty happy with the result.. (Okay I agree the street scene is bland). Unfortunately it is raining and an open control board with rain is a very bad combination so more tests will have to wait.

Next step is to play with the gain on my Flymentor to reduce the snappy auto correction and increase the risk of crashing
