Summary

A simple mount for the FatShark 600TVL and PZ0420M camera for the Mini Tricopter.

The PZ0420M only comes in the 7 degree tilt variant as it needs to be tilted to fit.

For the FatShark there are 2 mount options:

  • No Tilt - Has no up tilt added to the camera. This is best if you're just getting into FPV or if you like your horizon to be in the center of your image at hover. However this will mean that you're looking at more ground when you're in forward flight. You should also note that using this option the camera lens will not be centered in the opening in the frame. This is because it needs additional clearance up top so that the battery tray can fit.
  • 7 Degree Tilt - This option has 7 degrees of up tilt to the camera. This means that in a hover you're looking at more sky and it will have the feeling that you're tilted backwards. I would not recommend this if you're new to FPV. However if you're racing or doing a lot of fast forward flight then this one is for you!

Provided in the files section is a drill guide which you can use to drill a 3mm (1/8") hole in an existing bottom frame. If you don't already have a frame printed up it will be stronger if you use the provided bottom frame that has the hole already in it. This way the hole has some support around it rather than just the infill and a couple of solid layers.

Either way you'll need a M3x5 or 6mm bolt to attach it to the copter. You'll also need a small zip tie to attach the camera to the mount.

Enjoy!

Awesome mount. I love simple elegant designs, and this one is just that. I made a reverse 7* tilt for the FS600tvl. That way I can mount it upside-down and have the camera tilted up still.
