We have been using the Flymount for quite a while now in combination with our GoPro Hero 3+. We have had the opportunity to test the windsurfing gopro mount with focus on flexibility, versatility and durability.
Update: Read the test of the Flymount Generation 4.
At this stage we have tested the Flymount during our Ice Board sessions, moving it from the windsurfing boom to the mast and we have also used it to shoot some hand held footage.
When finetuning is crucial
Compared to the Windsurfing GoPro mount DIY that we have used before, the Flymount is really great when it comes to finetuning the pressure on the equipment. This isnt that important when you attach your GoPro on the boom, if you would like to attach your GoPro on the mast however, its a whole different story. With the Flymount we have been able to attach our GoPro half way down from the mast-top without the risk of damaging the sail.
The durability – A bomb proof windsurfing GoPro mount
When testing the durability of products like windsurfing mounts a sport like Ice Boarding is perfect. We have crashed the Flymount several times on to the ICE without any visible damage or loss of performance, that goes for the GoPro aswell.
