GoPro Ultralight tripod mount At first it's designed as the lighter possible tripod mount for a naked GoPro.
The camera it´s hold in possition by rubber bands and it´s prepared to be used with the HD case lens protector, so can be, for example, in a UAV.
The base it´s designed so you can mount it over a RC Servo, making a 1DOF POV camera pretty easily.

After the test print minor modifications has been done, as it fits the camera firmsly.

Thank you from the advice I´ve removed sandstone form the materials :) The hole is designed this way because of two facts: 1-In plastic you dont design the threads, as the screw is always metallic, it will make the thread the first time you screw it, and this way it will fit the best possible way. 2-I´ve seen that tripod screws , althougt the same theoretical size, have very different effective diameters. As an example, I have a chinese tripod where I fitted this mount and in the first try it fitted perfectly. Later, I tried the mount in a better tripod and it was impossible to fit. I had to use a 5.5mm drill (manually) to remove a little material from the walls so it could fit. I preffer to cut in material when you need, rather than making the hole bigger, as add in wall thickness is impossible later. hope my explanation helps :)

Do not order this in sandstone. I mistakenly thought that was a color choice, but, in fact, the material is like sandpaper and one insertion took away a huge amount of the paint from the camera. I don't know if the other materials are better. The camera fit is nice - if the mount was made from a smooth material. There is no thread on the tripod mount. It will need to be tapped to fit a tripod screw. As I won't be using this one, I guess that doesn't matter.
