I have that flush mount also, and I had a similar frame for an older GoPro.
Iím wondering if that is necessary. I feel as though the additional weight of the beefed up frame adds stress under G load. Like you, I donít want to lose the camera, so Iím trying to find a balance between strength and weight.
I guess what Iím asking is if anyone is using just the provided GoPro mounts that are plastic while doing aerobatics. Maybe Stu will chime in as he does a lot of filming, and aerobatics too.
