Question Best mounting point for a 360 Camera ?

Hi,
what can be the best mounting point for a 360 Camera like the GoPro Fusion on a RV6A?

Below the Wing at the tie down point with Planearound.com or at the top with Nflightcam mount point ?

Any tips wellcome,
Achim

I've made lots of films over the years - there's currently 9 camera mounts on my Pitts and 10 on my RV.

If I had to choose only one for producing the most consistently interesting footage it would have to be the one on my headset.

After that, the center top wing on my Pitts - which has inflight tilt & pan via a couple of R/C retract servos.

Some examples .....

Have fun - I think video making is the next best thing to actually flying !

Default 360 Sightseeing Flight over Hamburg Germany

Last weekend I made a sightseeing flight over Hamburg in Germany with a 360 GoPro Fusion camera mounted below the right wing of my RV6A.
Best with VR-Googles, a Tablet or a PC with youtube resolution switched to 4K.

There is a good thread on VAF discussing the impact of cameras mounted to the wing ...
