NFlightCam Exterior Ball-Head Mount
Our redesigned exterior mounting solution, the new Ball-Head Mount makes it much easier to mount and make adjustments to your camera angle than our older billet-style mount. Precision milled from aircraft-grade stainless steel and aluminum, our clean sheet design exterior mount is designed specifically for aviation and is FAA-compliant.
Want to know what it would look like to be strapped to the bottom of your airplane for takeoff or landing? Want to capture amazing shots of another airplane while flying in formation? Want to shoot cinema-quality footage of the scenery you're flying through, both with or without your plane in the shot? Our versatile Exterior Ball-Head Mount allows you to securely mount your GoPro anywhere you have a #8 or #10 machine screw. Pair this with our GoPro Propeller Filter, and you will be shooting phenomenal videos with ease.

The only safe and secure way to mount your GoPro outside of your aircraft
What's in the box:
1 NFlightCam Exterior Ball-Head Mount
1 Surface Spud for Ball-Head Mount (click here to purchase extras)
1 hex key for 10-32 socket head screw
1 10-32 stainless steel countersunk screw (for mounting to aircraft)
1 8-32 stainless steel countersunk screw (for mounting to aircraft)
Material: 18-8 Stainless Steel and 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum, Milled and Anodized
Maximum Demonstrated Speed: 350mph
Mount the spud near major structure such as a spar or rib. Inspection panels are typically not a good place to mount a camera, because they are in the center of a bay, not near major structure.
If you would like to mount to an inspection panel, add our NFlightCam Spanner Plate to secure your NFlightCam Exterior Ball-Head Mount.
If you would like to mount to a tie-down ring, add our NFlightCam Tie-Down Kit to secure your NFlightCam Exterior Ball-Head Mount.
For those hard-to-reach places where it's difficult to use a standard hex key, consider adding a 5/32" Ball-End Hex Screwdriver.
GoPro, Garmin, Sony, Nikon, FlyCam360, and most other action cameras with 3-finger or 1/4”x20 mount

My order shipped the day I placed it, and like my other NFlightcam products it works perfectly and effortlessly. I am a professional photographer and have been working for the flight school where I also take lessons… these mounts are hugely helpful in capturing beautiful images and videos. I even got to use it for my first solo- how many people have a video like THIS to remember their first solo?! https://youtu.be/9t2NYR1HaQ4 Thank you Nflightcam!
The mount was easy to install. I placed it on my wing tip. Works just as advertised. Great product. I will order more for other locations.
Nice GoPro mount
On my composite monocoque aircraft, there are few hardpoints for external camera mounts. Using the NFlightCam I was able to exploit one of the few I found. The results are quite good and I'm excited that I can now have external video for my flights. If I would change anything, it would be to put thick rubber around the hex nuts so it'd be easier to tighten/loosen them. Thanks for a great device!
Extremely high quality and well designed hardware. Quick install and removal and adjustable. Why go cheap on something that holds a $400 camera.
