This is a mount for the SQ11 HD camera. It should also work for the SQ8 model as well as other similarly shaped cameras.


It's intended to be mounted onto a mini quadcopter using a velcro strap or zip ties.

It's been designed using OpenSCAD, and the source code is included. It's somewhat parametric, allowing you to change things like the tilt angle relatively easily, but I got impatient towards the end and hard-coded certain things for the 30° angle I was after. You might have to tweak some of those hard-coded values if you intend to make modifications.

I've tried printing this in two different orientations, with the wedge at the bottom facing down, and with the back side of the camera mount facing down. Both seemed to work fairly well.

There's a few overhangs, but the model can still be printed without supports if you're not after absolutely perfect but still entirely functional results. If you decide to print with supports, orienting the part with the back side facing down towards the print bed will require less material and will make support removal easier as well.


Remove supports if you chose to print with them.

Depending on the elasticity of your filament, the fit might be a bit tight. You can make small cuts to one or two corners in the back to give yourself some more room to push in the camera. Even with those cuts everything seems to be held in place fairly well.
