Unlike other GoPro aircraft video mounts, MyPilotPro is not just made for a specific aircraft. MyPilotPro can be attached to virtually any General Aviation or Light Sport aircraft that have tie downs, which means that it can be utilized by all private pilots. As long as your aircraft has a tie down, you can attach MyPilotPro!




2 models to choose from ($49.95/$69.95) & FREE SHIPPING for Piper Forum members. Use code NEWTOWN when checking out at www.mypilotpro.com

Great product! I love mine! Had to make a minor alteration to accept my Garmin Virb... Easy and well worth it.

Interesting. Is it possible to clip that thing on the tail tie down with an over rotation on takeoff or a little too much nose up landing?

Physically possible, but very unlikely. Never has been an issue for me. I made a nose high, full flare landing yesterday with stall horn singing constantly for several seconds without issue. I may install the camera on one of my wing tie downs and point the camera towards the tail tie down and perform some steep departures and nose high landings to see how much ground clearance there appears to be. For I do, I'll certainly post the results and video

"Physically possible, but very unlikely".

Not that unlikely. I fly off grass and on landing, get the tailskid down to the dirt on a fairly regular basis.

Jim C, I would recommend that on those occasions that you either take the camera off for those flights or mount it, as also design intent, off of the wing tie down... The quick connect / disconnect toggle lever is very simple for this type of change. I hope you wouldn't have a landing configuration that would likely cause contact there 😜. If your that close to the tail tie down on your soft field landings, how often are you contacting the tail with the earth? (The distance between the camera and the bottom of the airplane is a very small value). How are things holding up back there??

I removed the Go-pro mount by simply removing the nut and bolt that that holds it on. Then took my Virb mount and cut it at the base to make a flat mounting surface and transferred a hole with a drill and bit to allow the same nut and bolt assembly to securely attach it to the clasp. It took about 10 minutes total time for the swap. Works great, keeps all the functionality and is very secure. Hope that helps. Jim
