FLYMOUNT AERO REVIEW
“Most impacts to the wing don’t cause huge shocks to the wingtips – at least not enough to worry the Flymount Aero’s grip, which is super solid.”
TESTED BY: Jim Gaunt
FULL REVIEW EXTRACT – CONSIDERATIONS
As the Aero mount itself weighs 140g and a GoPro Max 360 weighs another 160 grams itself, you’re looking at a 300 gram additional weight for your wing. In use on the water, particularly in stronger winds, I didn’t find this to be much of an issue with the mount on the wing tip.
I was able to drift the wing well without feeling like the wing was being pulled down at its wing tip and it didn’t feel top or bottom heavy when riding along in a regular riding position. Obviously your wing will always perform to its optimum without the camera and mount attached, but if you’re going out to get great images of yourself, you won’t feel compromised much in your performance with this on.
