    I received mine last week. It is very well made and lite. Until I get a GoPro, I put a SD780 on it - it just fits - nothing larger would work. I have not flown mine yet but look forward to a light wind day.

    Thanks Wicherd,

  • I've got a supply -- now I need the time to put it up on the website!

    Soon, I promise.

  • OK, I got em up on the site. You'll find them on the Kits & Bits page.

  • I love the design on this mount, Wicherd. What a great example of KISS.

  • Back from Berck...

    Thanks Tom.
    Just before Berck I decided to complicate things a little with respect to the GoPro. This resulted in a first prototype of the GoPro Pan Tilt rig. It needs a couple of changes, but it's there and working.
    It was photographed an awful lot at Berck. keep an eye on a new thread for this one.
  • I got a little creative with the GSD and put my SD780 on it.

    See pics here

    Now if I could just get the SD780 shutter speed worked out! Scripts that work fine on my A540 will not take manual control of SD780 shutter speed - grrr!! Still working on it.
  • Thanks for the pictures. Very interesting to see that the little rig can be used for other camera's too.

    Sorry I can't help you on the shutter speed issue, I have no knowledge on the 780. But I'm pretty sure if you post your question in a new thread it will get answered soon enough.
  • Do the cutouts for seating the camera on the GSD-rig accommodate the Hero2?
  • Absolutely, the Hero2 fits perfectly.

  • Thanks Peter, It just keeps getting better all the time!
