Nflightcam Metal Cage for GoPro Hero5, Hero6, Hero7
If you plan to exceed 150 KIAS or use our certified mounting options, this cage is a must. Designed for high-speed and high-impact environments where failure is not an option, this cage is machined from aircraft-grade aluminum with mil-spec anodization to endure the harshest environments. It replaces the plastic frame that comes standard with the GoPro.
Please note: This metal cage is recommended for GoPro Hero5, 6, and 7, because those models come with a plastic case in order to mount to 3-finger adapters, such as the adapter atop our NFlightCam Exterior Ball-Head Mount, pictured here. Plastic is prone to crack in high speeds and low temperatures, like those found in flight, so a metal cage is a recommended replacement. However, the GoPro Hero8, 9, and 10 do not require a case, because they have sturdy composite fingers built into the bottom of those camera models.
GoPro Hero5, Hero6, and Hero7. Not compatible with any other GoPro, including Hero8 onward. (Hero 8/9/10 have composite folding fingers built into the GoPro itself, so there is no need for an exterior cage.)
*Camera not included. Exterior Ball-Head Mount not included.
Confidence is Good, Control is Better
I've always been relatively confident that my OEM GoPro plastic cages would not break during flight, but there was always a nagging doubt. The NFlightCam metal cage for my Hero7 fixes that problem; its metal tabs will never break and the '7 fits snugly inside the solidly built enclosure. The cage gives me full control over the security of my installation. Customer service was also great - I originally opted to have my cage delivered to Pt Roberts where I'd go get it myself.. But with COVID, NFlightCam kindly changed my shipping destination to Canada over the phone.
