    Is there an adapter to carry a gopro under the stock camera on Phantom Vision? Perhaps som alternate landing struts that clamp on stock ones. Would just like higher quality video or higher quality snapshots at 5 second intervals. Usually stock camera is great but occasionally I want a bit more. Really like the vision so far.

    I'm curious about this too. I have seen someone else mount it right behind the existing camera against the body shooting straight down as well. I think they used some type of velcro or something to hold it there.

    I made the same setup as in the video and had severe vibration problems that hurt my image quality in the go pro. I then took a piece of plastic and drilled four holes to fit the rubber dampers, replaced the camera with my new plastic, and stuck a go pro mount on the plastic. Worked well, great video quality (as expected from a go pro).
