One of the most interesting ways to capture videos from FPV quads is through a third person view (3PV). Here’s a low-cost DIY 3PV mount for Insta360 Go 2 by Chronos FPV.
Sometimes, watching FPV videos can be confusing for non-pilots. A third person view can often be better for showing how the quad is performing the maneuvers. FPV pilot Chronos FPV used an Insta360 Go 2 with a DIY mount to capture an interesting third person view. Here’s one of his videos:
Although this is not the first time an Insta360 Go 2 has been used to capture a third person view, Chronos FPV used an ingenious, low-cost DIY design with zip ties, electrical tape, and … a plastic fork. Here are photos of the mount he used:
The fork mount is lightweight and places the Go 2 at the right angle and distance for a third person view. Unlike a custom 3D printed mount, Chronos FPV’s fork mount can be made by anyone for almost no cost, and you won’t have to wait weeks to get it. On the other hand, it is not as durable, so you’ll need to be more careful when flying. I plan to try it out with one of my quads. I may reinforce it with a chopstick or something. Meanwhile, you can check out Chronos FPV’s other videos on his Facebook page. And if you want to see another low-cost way to capture a third person view on an FPV quad, check out this related post.
