simplicity at its best.

This is what our first mounts were. Got us started and kept us going.

Best of luck to you.

Price is right, weight not too bad, and it looks fine from what I can see.

Great job!

not too bad,i made mani from pvc also,the pvc material cost me no more than $8 but the pan and tilt was a bit expensive,i think it was like $40 plus i got real good servos in it so it was way more for the pan and tilt then it was for the pvc mount

video AP on a budget

if the $50 bucks blows the AP budget there is a "free" video mount version for Raptors - called the "RappyCamPro360"
Specs:
Weight - zero kgs
Cost - $ zero

hey not bad helibelli,im sure thares diferent ways of doing it,and with litle effort and or expence,thats good though as long as it all works, heres my idea of a front mount for a trex 600E,maybe not as profesional as the comercially available,but sure does work nice

damage?LOL,i made it my self Bro,i have everything to make it,it is all made of leftover G10 sheets and aluminium angled bar,the most expensive are the servos depending on what servos you may want to use other than that,

i spent something like $80 to $100 in bearings,bearing blocks,shafts,gears and screws,it is not all that expensive really but most of all it takes too much to build it because i had to figure out what hardware and what accessories to use and find them all.very time consuming,

but also very simple and it was all hand made,all i used was a dremel,a drill and some basic tools to build it,all the bearing blocks are hirobo and the bearings are thunder tiger,the shafts are made from thunder tiger raptor 50 fethering spindles,

the gears and hubs wer from servocity,like i said,all the fiber glass sheets i have,it is very lightweight though
