I present to you the GO-Pilot.
Its a go pro accessory
its main purpose is to take you where the action is in the car.
Its idea is to make you feel like you are sitting in the passanger side like a co pilot would.
So to do that I needed to position the go pro in exactly that location (the passenger seat).
The Go-pilot fits on the bars of the head rest of the passenger seat.
The design is so that you do not take the headrest off to fit it in place which I think its a good idea.
Also its compatible with most car head rest post locations (these vary from 110mm to 200mm apart from my research) and the posts vary from 10-12mm in diameter.
(sorry all the dimensions are in metric (you guys should have adopt the metric system by now!!)
The Go-pilot caters both for of these possible dimensional changes as it has slots for the variations.
The other thing the Go-pilot does well is allow you to rotate the camera view.
This is possible by its go-pro mount design.
It uses the buckle clip instead of the screw on as I feel this might be used on a rally car or at very high speed where the G forces might be high and the mount might break (I have 3D printed those before with little performance as they keep on breaking on me).
The GO-pilot mount has 8 sides to allow you to locate the go pro at the correct desired angle.
For instance you might want to record the pedals and steering wheel action so the mount would be position not straight on but towards the driver side (rally driving)
Alternatively you might want to position it straigh on so you get only a glipse of the driver on the side of the shot and most is focus on the road ahead (chasing another car)
It could also turn the attention opposite the driver to see if you end up in front of the car on your side (drag racing).
hope you have fun with it AND always obey the road rules
