    I posted this in the "Help" thread- basically, a simple way of mounting the GoPro a little more forward and down so the struts don't get in the way of the JPEGS, and you are able to take pictures looking straight down. Since the soft plastic strips dampen vibrations, it also seems to help reduce the jello effect when videoing.

    Basically, it involves using two plastic inserts (circled) with holes drilled on each end between the Phantom mount and the GoPro mount, and holding everything together with two plastic screws (arrows) and nuts. This allows the camera to be positioned slighter further ahead and lower, and with the lens more centred between the struts.
