What They Say:
The PKS Strut Mount for GoPros gives a very cost-effective way to get your GoPro mounted on a kite strut for those amazing overhead shots.
The "Standard" position for the mounting clip puts the camera in-line with the strut. The "90-Degree" position puts the camera in-line with the kite from wingtip to wingtip. You MUST SELECT which position you want because these are NOT adjustable between positions. It is a fixed clip. It all depends on your editing software; free GoPro software only flips it 180-degrees, so you may want the 90-degree position clip. Many other editing softwares allow you to flip it 90-degrees, thus the Standard position clip works well.
The PKS Strut Mount features a quick, solid mounting system for mounting any version of GoPro camera to virtually any kite out there. Easy to store and attach, this strut mount comes with the standard click-in GoPro base and a leash loop. It does not come with any GoPro click-in connections. The J-Hook mount is the preferred one to use, however all GoPro mounts will work on the standard click-in GoPro base provided. We recommend getting the Grab Bag of mounts if you don't already have a GoPro mount with your camera.
It has an EVA strap base for solid and secure placement, and features extra-large 2" velcro strap for solid stability in your video by giving it a no-movement base. And believe me when this thing is strapped on it does not move at all! Easier and less expensive than other strut mounts, the PKS Strut Mount for GoPro is a great solution to expand your GoPro mounting angles for incredible all-around video footage.
Package includes: 1- 2" Velro strap with Standard GoPro Click-in base attached.
We LOVE this mount, we have used it for those great "helicopter" shots. More interesting is that its been our go to mount whenever we need to lash the go pro to...well..just about anything.
321 No Go:
Don't forget to use a tether and a floaty back door. The PKS mount is pretty indestructible, but the adapters from GoPro have been known to break.
