arDrone 2.0 bracket for GoPro 1 & 2 cameras
NOT COMPATIBLE with GoPro HERO3 - New design will be available shortly.

NEW click here for GoPro Hero3 mount for arDrone 2

This is 5 parts which must be cut appart before installation.
Instructions for installing the mount on your arDrone

EDIT - just added the extender to this product, it is two parts, put foam between them to lower the camera and further reduce vibrations.

I have some video on Vimeo, this was shot in WINDY conditions and look pretty bad, but you get the idea, as soon as the weather in LA improves for flying small copters, I will be updating the video.

GoPro Hero2 - I recommend cutting a disc of Lee Filter 9ND-P3 and sticking it under the glass on the protective cover as that will reduce the shutter speed and practically eliminate jello.

GoPro Hero1 - have slower shutterspeed and don't suffer as much from jello as hero2, but you can also use ND film to further reduce jello if required.

All kinds of precautions apply to this product, Im not responsible for your flying of this. or what you may do to your arDrone or GoPro camera... if somebody print this in red, do send me some pictures.

NOTES on getting beautiful video with arDrone-GoPro combinations. First, you MUST understand that even the arDrone 2.0 is under powered for wild flying. to stay in the air it must use power to force air down.. when you hang a GoPro under it, the battery empty faster because it use more power.
NEXT, understand moving, happens by the drone tilting, so it essentially is "sliding down a hill" by being at a angle.. so now to keep the same altitude the motor must work even harder.
Combining the sliding down a hill motion and the weight of the GoPro, means you are operating at the limit of what is possible with a arDrone. as a result the props and motors work hard creating lots of vibrations and shaking.
The solution is flying EARLY in the morning, when the air is cool and there is absolutely no wind or even a breeze, in completely still air, the arDrone do not need to compensate for wind and will fly much more stable and smoothly, and the motors will have less work to do, resulting in less vibrations. Early morning flights is key to getting amazing beautiful video from a GoPro mounted under a arDrone. There.. NOW you know. Happy Flying.

This sale include all parts required to mount you GoPro, arms and the adjustable cradle, it do NOT include arDrone, GoPro, GoPro protective lens.

Took just over a week to get to Australia which is really good. An instructional video on how to attach the mount would be really appreciated.

I received my gopro mount in last night and am now looking to see exactly how it all fits together. I'm assuming that the "extender" is the 2 additional parts that are not shown attached to the drone. Do these parts separate from each other and then we use "x" thickness of foam to re connect the 2 pieces? Is the reason for the extra to reduce vibration only or does it also help get the rotors out of the shot? Trying to fast track my knowledge as to why so I can cut down some experimenting. Also, now that I have started putting some of the parts together and playing with them, they seem to slide very easily within each other, what keeps the camera from just dropping out from the drone as it looks like the curved pieces are not binding enough to prevent this. Thanks Phil
