GoPro Ball Mount
The Rock Steady Gopro style ball mount is the durable and versatile low profile design that you have been looking for. This quality all metal mount will not move, bend, or fail, unlike plastic mounts. The metal GoPro adapter is compatible with any GoPro style camera. This unique Gopro adapter allows over 180 degrees of adjustment unlike most GoPro fork tri-pod adapters. The knuckle clamp attaches to any Rock Steady base allowing 360 degrees of adjustment. The knuckle locks your camera into any position with a hex wrench, or by hand with an included T-handle screw. Buy multiple Rock Steady bases to add numerous quick change mounting locations at an affordable price. Compatible with GoPro, Hero 2, Hero 3 & 3+, Hero 4, Hero 5 and Garmin Virb XE, Ultra 30, Virb 360, or any Go Pro style camera.
The Rock Steady surface base allows you to turn any two existing fasteners into a secure and stable platform. Don’t trust one screw holding your HD Camera in a high speed, high vibration environment. Simply attach your camera to any 2 fasteners that are between 2″-5″ apart. Just attach the base directly over a inspection cover or wing tip. A rubber gasket is included to protect your painted surface. Two included flush washers fit the base plate slots and accept most #6 – #10 size screws. When the camera mount is not being used, the surface base is low profile. Attach numerous bases to your aircraft for quick change camera locations. The surface base has been tested up to 250 kts. This surface base is compatible with all Rock Steady mounts

Approval rating description:
Safe & Secure – If installed properly, this mount is safe and secure to withstand forces of flight. If this mount is only rated safe and secure, then it may or may not meet the other categories on its own or in all installations. However, this mount is at least suitable for external attachment on all experimental aircraft. Though experimental aircraft do not fall under the same regulations for installation as certified aircraft, violations are still possible under FAR 91.13 and 91.15 such as with sticky mounts, suction cups, and plastic mounts failing. If installed, maintained, and operated properly, this mount is of the highest quality to never fail. All responsibility is on the installer and operator. The hardware and parts needed varies with each install. Provisions such as loctite or safety wire should be used as needed.
FAA Friendly Minor Alteration – This camera mount meets all practical design criteria falling under a FAA minor alteration. Under a minor alteration the FAA requires only a logbook entry from an A&P mechanic. This commercial off the shelf product uses recognized materials and design aspects that may be recognized by AC 43.13. Each minor alteration varies between aircraft types and mounting locations. Final responsibility is on the A&P mechanic making the logbook entry. The use of AC 43-210A may be helpful in determining your installation can be considered a minor alteration. All responsibility is on the installer and operator. The hardware and parts used varies with each install. Provisions such as loctite or safety wire should be used as needed. Each install should follow 43.13.
