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 and 9 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 or Hero9. (Hero 8/9 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.
Camera vibrates in cage, fit allows camera to move slightly. Had to shim camera to prevent vibration.
Excellent. Very simply made and easy to use.
It works well and is easy to use.Pre-drilled to allow for safety wire.
Nflightcam was every thing I hoped it was.. Bolted on the wing strut clamp and mounted the Hero 7 cage. Solid and well built. I believe in this company.
Excellent and fun will use a lot.
