Quote from: etodd on August 05, 2016, 02:20:42 amHas anyone started receiving any of the 'new' Garmin Virb Camera Airplane Mounts. We've (our area) been out of the vertical photography business for quite awhile now and no word is seen coming down the line for a new mount to get us back in training mode for mission readiness.Other Wings have the new mounts yet?

Quote from: JeffDG on September 09, 2016, 10:00:33 pmThe "official" mount option was discussed at the national conference.It's an inspection-plate replacement that will let us attach the camera out on the wingtip, but will be bolted in place. Theyre working on getting mounts distributed to the Wings.

Quote from: etodd on September 10, 2016, 01:40:41 pmUsing this, one can then mount a GoPro right next to the Virb. Enabling live view from the GoPro for pilot's navigation while Virb is firing off photos. Perfect solution and increasing accuracy in results.

But, is it approved for use on CAP aircraft by the FAA and CAP?
Quote from: etodd on September 11, 2016, 01:18:08 amI have flown hundreds of hours of GoPro external mounts from suction to hard mounts ever since GoPros first arrived on the scene ... and have never had a problem.
Quote from: Live2Learn on September 12, 2016, 12:05:31 amReminds me of the guy who said he'd used baling wire on his supercharger for years and never had a problem ... that is, until he did. Sorry, the logic of "I've never had a problem with..." doesn't hold a lot of water.
