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. 

Our mount is FAA-compliant! Click here to read our A&P's Guide to Action Camera Mounting.

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

Excellent... PERFECT even!

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?! Thank you Nflightcam!

Fantastic product and even bette customer service

When I first received the mount I noticed the threads were stripped, so I submitted a form on the website asking what protocol was. The replacement part arrived before I had time to get back with them to answer their questions. I could not be happier with their products and absolutely can not say enough to their customer service. Thanks very much!!

Great product and great customer service!

I have ordered several products from N-FlightCam and they are top quality products. They have certainly helped me capture great video on a Cirrus and a Just Highlander. I had one issue with one of the 3-Finger Fork, but they replaced it with no questions asked. Highly recommend!

Ball head mount review.

My overall experience with the ball head mount from purchase through installation, through use (camera mounting) has been excellent. I only wish the GoPro Max was as easy to use and edit!

Friendly and available on follow up questions, even questions not directly pertaining to their product.
