I have been designing "Screwless" TPU Camera mounts for a bunch of Runcam cameras.
Now contains Variants for 30 and 35mm standoffs
This one is made for the Alien / Martian 2, but should fit any frame with the middle of the standoff holes ~28-29mm apart. I've uploaded two angle variants, 25/30 degrees. The geometry of the split means there might be a small amount of standoff in view with higher-FOV lenses. You can sand these down to suit. I've already made a notch required for the 30 degree variant to work with 150 degree lenses.
This design is currently known to fit with:
- Runcam Split V2
- Runcam Split V1 (Requires a few winds of insulation tape as it's a bit smaller than the V2)
Check out my other things to find variants for other cameras.
As the name suggests, you don't need to screw the camera into the mount. All you have to do is pry the mount open a bit, and pop the camera in!
This will fit any frame that uses 35/30mm standoffs, and has ~27mm of clearance behind the front standoff. The camera sits completely flush in the design, and as a result, the camera compatibility is fairly limited, and the camera angle has to be set in CAD. This stops the camera angle from deviating during bumps and crashes.
I'm eager to expand the range of cameras that I can make variants for. If you get the chance to try this print with similar cameras, please let me know what does fit, and I'll add it to the compatibility list.
Printed with TPU.
Rotate the design so it is upright (as pictured).
A Flexible material is required so that the mount can be pried apart.
You might need to try inserting it once or twice, with slightly different entry angles, in order to figure out how to best get it in, but once it does, it should "snap" into place.
Insert the standoffs before putting it onto the drone! These fit very tightly, so may require a "tapping" motion to get in at first.
