If you’ve had one of these in the past on a whoop or a Toothpick, you know how freakishly resilient and durable it is. Definitely not indestructible but it was designed for whoops and we’ve been smashing it at ~70+ MPH for a year now and so far there is nothing out there that can begin to compare. TPU will be more durable but offers little in the way of structural protection if you try and match the insanely low 1.3g weight of the Bee Brain V2. After immense testing of all available non-TPU canopy options that will fit the Toothpick, we came back to this.
This mount was designed for Whoop AIO cams that have board dimensions of 13.5x13.5mm with an M7 mount lens. Unfortunately, our preferred cameras (Runcam Nano 3 and OV231) don't quite fit inside the mount as it is but it’s a very simple fix. Check out the pictures and you’ll see that all you need to do is clip back the camera protection bumpers on the front a little then hold the camera with some tape or anything of your choosing. Yes, in the year 2020 this is the best we have. It’s quite frustrating but this is the lowest weight, most durable, best looking camera/mount apparatus we’ve been able to come up with. You’re looking at about 2g for camera and mount with high durability. Pretty hard to beat.
Oh and if you’re buying this for a whoop or an AIO cam, have at it! It’s awesome!

The best and lite there is
Great light weight mount!!
Would be nice to have a build sheet, but other than that, this is a solid, well designed frame. Nice and stiff and looks pretty bomb proof. Comes with lots of quality hardware as well. Won't finish build till spring so can't wait to fly it!
