Ribcraft 585 Go pro

Thought you might like a short gopro video the RC boys put together !

We made a custom mount for the Gp after reading reports of the units vibrating at speed !



I will post image of the bracket if you are intrested...

Enjoy

It was a great day down in Weymouth last Sunday once we got through the floods. Thanks again to Charlie and the guys at Ribcraft who did a great job on my RC and kept me updated at least twice a day on progress. BTW cabin rib looked great.

Interested in the GP attachment as I get terrible wobble with mine with the standard flat adhesive attachment on top of the A frame to the point that the it is mostly unusable footage even at slow speeds.

Looks like a ball joint giving 360 degree swivel, perfect for quick changes of direction while filming. Sign me up, I want one. How much and where do I order it?

Is that some sort of alloy scaffolding clamp you've converted there, excellent bit a kit, you best patent it, like the vid by the way, interesting to see the effects of such a high speed J turn, as my testiculies wouldn't allow me to try that, but that dude in the back seems to get the worst bone shaker, leading me to think those wing seats must be worth it after all...

Nice Video Boys. Good to see the office crew still get wet!.Reminds me of my first ''Ribcraft come and Try'' off Portland in a Force Five.. When Charlie told me to.. ''Give it some Beans and see if you can Break someting!!''
Now THATS confidence in your product!
Oh, and I picked up a camera mount myself at the weekend..Looks The Muts!

don't forget a lanyard

Dont forget to thread a small lanyard through the hollow hinge part as an insurance policy..
I am sure it wont go anywhere but better be safe than sorry
With the weight of the clamp no floaty back thing will keep that bad boy buoyant !
Have a great and safe trip,If you get chance pop to see Alan Woodnut at the main electrical hardware store on the island he has a 585 and he brings it across for service every year 135 mile on water round trip for a engine service !

Cheers

Tried the lanyard ... problem we found was that if the lanyard in any way flaps around it can - and will - hit the camera case and gets picked up loudly on the microphone. Make sure it's very tightly wound so it can't move.

With a standard set-up of adhesive mount we've now abandoned the lanyard - those adhesive mounts are sh!t to a blanket on a properly prepped surface

I got the size of my aframe wrong so I gave it to AJ as he has the 2" tube. Looked a really nice bit of kit.

We should have 3 rather nice 585's out in the Solent this Saturday if you are up this way
