    What a pain mounting that little camera that comes with the FS Predator. Would help if the connector was out the side and not the back :?: .

    Would love to get some input on how some of you mounted the camera.

    Does anyone make a bracket (other than Shapeways, I think they do but I need something now and they are in the UK) to aid in mounting this camera?

    Thanks

    I zip tied it to the bottom of the leg for a while.

    Ended up strapping it to the body part of the gopro bracket with a zip tie through the holes and around the barrel of the camera. Actually worked very well.

    Ended up zip tying it to the strut, it will do for now, have a cable ordered for the gopro and will use that as the permanent solution till I get a gimbal, then it's back to this camera I guess. Really poor design when you consider it's use but I don't know if FS designed this camera or just found one on the market that would be best. Sure seems they could have found one with a side connector, that would have made life easier.
