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!

Delivery Failure

Drop shipping from the warehouse in TX, should be a straightforward system for the owners. BUT, like everyone else, the ENDEMIC seems to be the fault?


Tim's package shipped from our company warehouse (not drop shipping) within an hour of the order being placed on our website via the shipping method he selected: $9.99 USPS Priority Mail. ("$14.99 UPS Ground, more reliable than USPS" and "$49.04 UPS Next Day Air" were his other options at checkout). Tim later contacted us demanding a refund because the box had not arrived in time for a photoshoot he had scheduled. Even though the package was sitting in his local post office in Tennessee, we processed a return-to-sender at our expense and refunded him in full. Despite this, he is still upset about the service he received. We strive to do everything in our power to make each customer happy, but that is apparently not always achievable. All customers: If you need a package urgently, please do not choose USPS as your shipping option. The US Postal Service has been unreliable at hitting estimated delivery windows since the pandemic began. This is an on-going issue nationwide and has been extensively reported in the news. We still offer USPS as a shipping option in order to provide a cheap method for people who are not on a strict timetable. Anyone who needs a package urgently, please choose UPS at checkout instead. Thank you!
