This is an FPV AIO camera mount for a Syma X5C. It is meant to be strapped on top of the canopy. I use this mount on my brushless Syma X5C to fly FPV with it. The mount has a hole for the battery strap to slip through for secure mounting.
UPDATE 08/20/2017: Added a revised mount with an additional slot to hold a DC/DC converter for AIO systems that require 5V such as the Boldclash F08.
Print the mount in TPU, I personally use Ninjaflex. Using a flexible material is advisable because you need to be able to pull the frontside with the lens hole forward to insert the module. You can then secure the module in place using some elastic bands.
If you use a hard plastic such as PLA then you are advised to cut away some plastic to modify the hole into a slot. Again you can then secure the module with elastic bands.
This mount is quite heavy so if you mount it on an original X5C it might fly a bit sluggish... I use it exclusively on my brushless 3S X5C.

Rotate the mount sideways in your slicer to prevent it from generating support material.
The OpenSCAD has parameters that can be tweaked to change angle and to switch between a rounded bottom (for Syma canopies) or flat bottom.
