These pictures show the very basic 85 gramme Autokap camera mount we use for light winds, adding the pendulum extension tubes add much stability.
This rig is set to rotate roughly once in 5 minutes with several turns put on the rubber band, the rig rotates very slowly when only 4 or 5 turns are put on the band, this is useful when the target is only to one side. The rig can be flown for 10 minutes or so and then recovered and reset for another half turn flight. This mount is much the same as that used within the covers on the previous page. The Gentled triggering device is set at six second intervals.
The L mounts allow for tilt adjustment and easy access to the camera controls. The three cameras we use all fit on this mount using two different bottom L brackets .After 20 outings during our first three months Kaping it is interesting to find that camera’s are the only piece of kit we are looking to upgrade.
