Tips for putting a GoPro camera on a drone

  1. 1. Tips for putting a GoPro camera on a drone
  2. 2. What you need to consider: • Does it have a GoPro mount? • Is it strong enough to carry a GoPro camera? • Is it a safe drone to fly? • Does it have a gimbal? • How long is the flight time?
  3. 3. Does it have a GoPro mount? Some drones like the DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal is perfectly adapted to use with a GoPro camera. It comes with a gimbal included for smooth video. Others like the Parrot AR Drone does not have a GoPro mount, so you have to buy that yourself, or create one.
  4. 4. Is it strong enough to carry a GoPro camera? Most of the cheaper drones, and the mini drones, do not have the power to lift off and fly carrying both a GoPro camera and a mount. Make sure that the drone is strong enough.
  5. 5. Is it a safe drone to fly? It is a good idea to make sure that the quadcopter you are interested in has a good safety record and good safety functions. It would suck to crash your 500 dollar camera with a 50 dollar drone. Look for a drone with ”return to home” function, so that the drone will automatically return home if you run out of fuel, or something unexpected happens.
  6. 6. Does it have a gimbal? A gimbal will keep the camera completely straight even if the wind blows or the drone moves. That is very important when you are shooting video, and you will just not get very good video without it. If you only take pictures it is not very important.
  7. 7. Top 4 list: See a top 4 list of GoPro drones here on DroneGuru.
