Flybubble tip: If you're using a GoPro camera, then you will also need to order a GoPro tripod mount (see GoPro website). Then mount the support to the carabiner and riser on one side; including the carabiner during mounting prevents excessive yawing. The base is made of rubber so it conforms and grips well. This is a great location to mount a camera and provides a more stable, cleaner mount with the ball joint than some other mounts. As the harness rolls around in turbulence, the horizon remains more horizontal in the field of view. You won't have to hand out motion sickness pills to your audience before viewing your flights!

Here's an example of a film made using this mount:

Flytec Bumblebee - Universal Camera Bracket (HG+PG) Reviews

No fuss stable footage on 13/01/2014

This riser clamp produces the best gopro footage I've ever seen, more useable footage than any other mounting position. Provided you're not weightshifting/rolling a lot, it is very stable and smooth. Much better than helmet shots. Looking up at wing shot was superb too. Highly recommended product with every Gopro purchase!
Best all-round simple solution I've found so far on 12/01/2014

I gave the Flytec Universal Camera Bracket a proper paragliding test with my GoPro HERO3+ yesterday: Lots of launching, ground handling up and across slopes, lots of flying, thermaling, wings overs, different angles etc. Works great! Very easy to set up and use. Best all-round simple solution I've found so far! Far less risk of line tangles than a helmet mount. As it's designed for mounting flight instruments, less likely to snag than home-made nuts and bolts options, and it's ready made. I'll be using it lots more in future!
