    We'll be releasing a smaller ball bearing pan mount as well next week.

    Email or call us via our website. You can just order the kit and we'll include the side mount per your request.

    Darn... didn't consider this... makes sense..

    My theory is (was) the GoPro area is in the slipstream of the fuse, where the upper cam sticks out right in the wind.

    Your thinking is correct... slipstream = boundary layer
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    when flying in the higher end of the throttle range how does the mount hold up ? just curious if there is any jitter since there would be a fair bit of wind pushing it back

    Received mine, building it now!

    Edit: 109 grams... bit heavy, but solid pan servo.

    I would say most of us fly in the "higher end of the throttle range" and it works great. We've come up with this package due the demands of the industry, flyers and different platforms. The connection to the 360 servo uses the OEM horn so it isn't as solid as our Ball Bearing Pan Kit but it does work well if you really want 360 degree pan.

    Assembled and installed (excuse the catastrophic work area):



    How to attach the gopro securely? I installed some foam inside to press against, whilst using rubber bands.

    Some pre-flight comments:
    - Overall construction solid, professional and accurate
    - The holes of the bit attaching to the tilt servo cross-arm does not align perfectly over the servo arm holes.
    - It's not clear how to hinge the left of the tilt bracket - I just screwed it in, seems to move freely, not sure for how long..
    - The hitec servo cable is 10mm too short for comfort - but I suppose soldering is a FPV'ers lot
    - The GWS servo winch wheel's inner hub does not fit the hole made for it at the bottom of the pan bracket - some filing of the nylon was required
    - The GWS servo is very noisy. I destroyed my video when using the same power, so I had to place it on the separate power rail

    Thanks for an awesome product.

    Now if that trinity head tracker would just show up...
