I’ve had a few questions about the GoPro mount in the R22 and R44 helicopter and how I capture the radio and intercom audio. I have tried many different audio and mount options and finally came up with something that works very well. Watch the video below for the details.
Here is a link to each of the pieces on Amazon (I found to usually be the best price):
- GoPro Hero3 Silver Edition
- GoPro Naked Case
- GoPro Suction Cup Mount
- Mini USB to 3.5mm adapter
- Mini Microphone
- 32 GB Micro SD Card
- Spare Batteries & Charger Setup
I have to set the GoPro upside down, make sure you set the settings to record upside down or you will have to rotate all your videos afterwards. Also, I record at 720P 30 FPS – 1080 is great but takes forever to copy to my PC, upload, work with in an editor and I didn’t notice enough of a difference to warrant the extra file sizes.
