Helicopter Camera Pod Mod

I have had this idea for a while now but have had to wait till I got a helicopter with a decent fuselage to attach a camera pod to. Most reasonably priced helicopters that come with a camera are not very good so I have always wanted a mod a camera onto a decent single rotor one.

I recently brought the Hubsan Lynx single rotor that has a nice amount of flat space to attach an adhesive strip to.

This is a really simple mod. All you need is some picture hanging strips and a spy camera.

There is a large selection of spy cameras on Amazon and I brought a few different types to mess around with. The one that I decided to use with this mod fits the hanging strip nicely so I chose that one.

All you need to do is attach one strip to the camera…

…and the other to the underbelly of the helicopter.

The camera sticks really well and I am sure it will hold just fine.

The only problem I see so far is that the camera protrudes the landing gear so taking off could be tricky.

That’s all for now. Will hopefully test it at the weekend.
