building your own camera mount
Are there any designs out ther for the taking for building a camera mount, I am thinking of building my next one on my own, with a pan and tilt. If there is no plans, any tips from you guys.

Thanks allot

Do a search there are some on here. From what I can tell most of them are in the past when this was just getting started. Now that it's more established most people are buying one of the manufactured ones now that they are available. Someone on here made a design out of free paint stirrer sticks. I took that and ran with it and have yet to succumb to buying a mount for stills. But when I get ready to do video I'll probably buy one. Just remember to use grommets and o-rings and things like that to isolate the camera from the helicopter vibration.

You might try just starting out with just tilt. It adds more complexity to design pan when you can just yaw the helicopter in the direction you want.

Here is how I did it. On the gasser there are 4 points where the cam is isolated from the heli; the bolt through the radio tray has a grommet, grommet from bolt to mount, o-rings connecting mount to gimbal, grommet and foam between cam and gimbal. On the T-rex there's much less room for isolation, only grommets between mount and gimbal. Homemade mounts are nice because they stay on the helicopter and you don't have to take the mount on and off to transport it. I'm going to go with the same basic design for a Sony DSC-R1 on the gasser. Sorry for the blurry close ups I think the fujifilm saw through the mount and focused beyond.
