Strut Camera Mount from Aircraft Spruce
With the proliferation of small video cameras and the Internet making it easy to distribute and share videos, many builders and pilots are looking for unique ways to mount their units in and outside their aircraft. Nothing is more disturbing than wondering if that expensive camera you stuck to the wing with duct tape will be there when you land!
The new Strut Camera Mount from Aircraft Spruce was specifically designed to mount industry-standard action cameras to the wingstrut on Cessna Aircraft including the 150, 152, 170, 172, 180, 182, and 210. Experimental aircraft utilizing Cessna wingstruts can also use this Strut Camera Mount. In addition, the mount can also be reconfigured to attach to tubular structures between 1.13 and 2.80 inches in diameter—making it adaptable to almost any aircraft with a roll bar in the cockpit. Switching between the wingstrut configuration to the tubular configuration takes seconds. The patented attachment method ensures that the mount will not mar or damage the wingstrut or tube it is attached to while providing a very solid point of attachment. The mount is machined from proprietary 6061 aluminum extrusions specifically designed for this product. The camera mounts to a 1/4-20 stud attached to the professional ball mount, which gives freedom of movement to set up the shot as needed (camera forward, rearward, or sideways). The ball mount is very rigid, and it acts as a vibration-minimizing attachment between the camera and the mounting surface.
