This mount allows you to attach a GoPro camera to the skid of a model helicopter. It has been designed for an Align T-Rex 600 Pro, but in general it should fit any skid tube with a diameter of 9mm. The mount is engineered to allow the use of standard GoPro mounting hardware and accessories. Please keep in mind that since this is a fixed mount if you have vibrations in the heli they will translate into vibrations on the image.

The mount should be able to withstand basic acrobatic manoeuvres, but as you probably understand, I will not take responsibility for any loss... If you're looking for more robust mount, please checkout my 9mm Heavy Duty Camera Rig, found here

Hi, I fly the GoPro on both my Align T-Rex 450 (see my other mount) and T-Rex 600 Pro. The 450 is able to carry it easily, as long as you just fly around. When you go into violent manoeuvres, the flybar-less controller of my 450 (Align 3GX in my case) can get into trouble: the heli can become unstable as if the gain of the controller is set too high. My Align T-Rex 600 (see pictures) on the other hand has no trouble whatsoever carrying it around, I'd say it almost flies as if it isn't there. The advantage of this mount is that I can easily swap it around on different heli's, which is quite handy out on the field: we've mounted it on different models ranging from a 550 all the way up to the new TRex 800, we've even used this mount on some airplanes as little as the Multiplex Gemini (although I must admit that one was probably a little small :-), no worries: both the camera and plane landed safely). In general, if it fits a stick you can mount it ;-) , you can put this on any 9mm bar. Hope this helps
