    Just finished with my F550 build. I have a GoPro 3, with its standard case (which I use on my P2). One question for the group is where folks are putting GoPro (or similar) cameras as well as FPV cameras?

    Logically, I would think the FPV camera would go on top (on the top plate) and the larger camera would fit on the bottom plate and "hang" using the stock mount, but am not sure. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    Thanks!

    You could do something like this on mine. Keeps the camera out front of rotors to avoid them ever coming into the shot. The batteries act as a counter balance.
