Nflightcam Ultimate Action Camera Suction Cup Cockpit Mount
This mount contains the ultimate action camera suction cup and articulating arm for mounting a GoPro, Garmin Virb, Sony, or any other action camera with a 3-finger (GoPro-style) mount or standard 1/4"x20 camera thread. The industrial-grade vacuum suction cup securely adheres to any smooth non-porous surface, allowing you numerous mounting options in your cockpit. The attached fully-articulating stainless steel arm allows you to find the perfect angle with complete flexibility. Easily adjust the arm on all axes by loosening the knob in the middle. Then lock the arm into position by tightening the same knob.
This mount is designed for shooting videos solely from inside your cockpit. If you want to mount your camera outside the cockpit, check out our Ball-Head Exterior Mount.
Attach your choice of camera to the end of the articulating arm. Attach the articulating arm to the suction cup by threading it securely into the 1/4"x20 threaded hole in the suction cup. Mount the suction cup to a clean, smooth, relatively flat surface in the cockpit by applying gentle pressure while pumping until a solid suction grip is achieved. Use the knob on the articulating arm to adjust the angles to aim your camera.
Note on suction:
If the red line on the pump begins to show, this is a warning that a pressure change in your aircraft is starting to compromise the suction. No worries! Simply give it a few more pumps to reestablish good suction, and the red line will be hidden again. Remember that altitude changes cause pressure changes, so suction cups mounts should never be attached to the outside of a plane!
All GoPro cameras, Garmin cameras with 3-finger mount, all Sony Action Cams, or any camera with a standard 1/4"x20 camera-mounting hole
OPTION FOR SMARTPHONE:
Want to use this mount with your smartphone as well? Make sure to select "Smartphone AND GoPro" in the Connector dropdown menu. This will include the smartphone connector in addition to the standard GoPro connector, so you can use it either way!

This is the second one I have purchased, well built and fits most applications.
I bought the kit that came with the suction cup cockpit mount and cable. Works perfectly. I've had it for almost a year and somehow the pump cracked and quit holding suction. I contacted Nflightcam and they replaced it immediately. Shipped it out same day and a couple days later i was back in action. Great company with great customer service!!!
no problems works better than expected
I used it for the first time yesterday in the airplane with my go pro, and it did not take long to set up and move the mount in such a way as to be in the best position for the video in the cockpit. All the other mounts I have used take so much time to put together and position it to work. The only thing I do not like is that it takes an allen key to attach, tighten and remove the camera from the mount rather than a hand moveable screw.
This is one of those products that probably could not be improved. It does exactly what you want it to do through almost every angle. I have had success up to 10 000’ where it is rock solid and adjustable in an instant.
