    Attaching FPV camera to quad? How do you do it?

    I'm just curious what methods you guys are using to attach your FPV cameras to your quads? I have a Witespy VC-450. I just bought my first FPV setup from RMRC. I bought the Supreme 1.3GHz setup with the FatShark Dominator goggles. The camera I have, is the RMRC-600XVN. Like this one:

    Thoughts on the best way to attach it to my quad? Double sided tape?

    Here's how I do it. http://fpvlab.com/forums/showthread....ll=1#post70324

    I essentially added a tabbed center plate above, then mount the camera hanging down.

    Same camera, mounted with a nylon bolt and a dab of Goop.

    I mount everything on a piece of lite ply and velcro to the bat.

    Thanks guys! I currently have it mounted to one of my tabbed plates with some double sided tape. Seems to be working pretty well.

    CCD cameras are easy to mount when you have the bracket. I'd be more interested in how people mount their pixim based board cam's.

    If thats not the most unorthodox way I have ever seen FPV gear mounted then I dont know what is! If it works it works.
    FPV is not a crime!

    I've used hot glue to mount board cams. But getting the camera back off is somewhat trickier. Outdoor mounting tape (the gray stuff, 5 pound pull) is what I use on my new cam, but its got a flat spot. Oh and a security ziptie.
