I bought this and test flew it yesterday. It was easy to fit, and it worked really well. Does what it says on the tin, as they say. My only minor concern is that since Im flying a rental, and I need to fit/remove this each time, I am a little concerned about the longevity of the metal strap and whether it may fatigue and break. I dont want to lose the mount and camera one day (quite apart from the legal and safety concern of something falling from an aircraft). So Im looking to convert to the rubber strap version. Otherwise, for a permanent fitment, this would be superb.
Product appears to be made of high quality components. Wont be using it until next month when in Alaska.
FLIX ROCK STEADY STRUT/SKID STAND BALL MOUNT & STEEL STRAP
Good Product, received in reasonable time frame.
When I was installing it, I trimmed the length of the strap three times and it was still too short! - Just kidding. It took me about a half-hour to assemble and install. Its a really solid mount and has a quality feel to it. I havent flown it yet, but I can tell that the camera is going to be rock solid on it.
I bought these for my Auster restoration. I wanted something sturdy and adjustable that can be relocatable on the wing struts. This seems to fit the bill and all I will need is CASA approval to be able to fit them to the airframe.
