I took the excellent design from Pilotboy, made the holes smaller and added standoffs to the back so that a board cam can be screwed on directly from the back without the need for additional nuts or spacers and added 2 additional degrees.

tilt angles available - do note that the 35 degree tilt will require you to make a significant cout out in the top plate of your ZMR250 as half of the picture will otherwise be blocked by it:

  • 10 degree
  • 15 degree
  • 20 degree
  • 25 degree
  • 30 degree
  • 35 degree


print with 20% infill.

can you tell me if this suits 32mm board cams?
In my special case this one: http://www.banggood.com/700TVL-FPV-HD-Ultralight-Camera-With-2_1mm-Lens-NTSCPLA-For-FPV-RC-Multicopter-p-1000385.html?rmmds=myorder
The outer dimensions of the pcb are about 32mmx32mm

yes, the mounting dimensions are 28mm x 28mm. I should fit the banggood cam above.

Thanks, hopefully the first fitting cam holder :)
Will print it later

Worked well, had to trim it a bit to fit my zmr, it was too long. And I had to trim it for the camera to fit because it has an oscillator in a bad spot.

Thanks for this! One question, what size/length screws are intended to mount the camera to this? I have a 600TVL Sony, tried #4 wood screws, but they're too large. Just thought I'd ask in case you had a specific size and length in mind I could go grab at the hardware store. Cheers!

I used #2 7/16 screws which I cut shorter. You need something small that fits the holes of the PCB

The aluminum standoffs in my frame kit were 37mm. I printed the 10 degree and it fits but the height measures 36mm. I simply suggest you measure your standoffs and adjust the height to match as I could have used another 1mm for sure. Its a nice simple design that works. I did have to dremel out a little spot for the xtal protruding from the front of my 700tvl board cam. Next time I'll edit that out before printing as well.

Nice ! Some kits come with different standoffs unfortunately. Problem with clone of clones ;-)
Happy you sorted it out.

Very nice design. Request 30-35 degrees please!

NOTE: the problem I have in that sort of tilt on the standard camera mount is that the components of the camera are now pushing hard against the lower plate (PDB). It looks as though your mount will lift the camera up a bit (vertically) to keep those components away.

it will get tight at 3-35 degrees. I will try once I have a bit of time and post the result here.

I printed and installed the 15 degree mount on my Emax250 and it's a perfect fit.

Will this fit the QAV250 as well?

I doubt it. Sorry

Printed the 20mm version, and the notches which push into the top/bottom plates don't line up. Spaced too wide apart.

Maybe I'm using a different ZMR version? I got mine from Banggood (carbon fibre) though they all seem to be the same design.

Hi, this is strange. Maybe your frame is different to the rest (I need to check where I got mine from as it was either banggood or goodluckbuy). Does the camera mount that came with your frame fit?

The mount which came with the frame fits, yes.

Here is a pic: http://i.imgur.com/8kmxOJV.png

I suspect the print is bad? It also seems too thick to push into the slot.

I ordered ABS with medium quality, but perhaps this needs finer detail?

Looks like it was scaled up when it was printed or the layer thickness and width was very high and somehow the outline was not kept to scale due to that- do the holes line up for the camera?
Medium is a very loose definition in 3D Hub, ask for 0.2mm layer height for the next print. You can still use it though. Use a knife to remove some of the excess material to make it fit. It can be easily cut and will not reduce it's strength a lot due to that.

Thanks for your help, exactly what I needed to know. Much appreciated.

how many degrees of tilt is this mount? can you make a 20 degree version?

The current version has a 10 degree tilt.
Yes I can make a 20 degree version. Stay tuned......

Update: 15 and 20 degree added. Please report back if they work as I have not tested them in the quad (the top plate might get in the way of the lens, especially with the 20 degree version).

finally got my camera in from China!

i printed the mount the day after you remixed it, but it took me this long to finally test it.

20 degrees worked perfectly, i uploaded a picture.


Thanks for the confirmation. I'm happy it works. Race away :-)

wow, that was super quick.

i'll print both and report back (probably won't be as quick though :)
