Great design! This was my first ever print with a flexible material (SainSmart Shore 95A TPU off amazon) and it worked absolutely perfectly just using my normal PLA parameters and the Print settings you recommended in the description. GoPro Hero 7 Black fits absolutely perfectly and i am absolutely confident it won't ever come out by accident!
Looking forward to actually flying with it. Thank you so much for sharing your design!

Printerd version 5.1 for a friend who got the a Hero7. Fits perfectly . Good job and thanks!

Hey! I really like your design and I tried printing it for the new Hero 7. Unfortunately, the body of the 7 is 45mm in height (and your design is 44), so it doesn't fit in your mount. I'm not sure if the Hero 6 is smaller.. Do you think it would be possible to adapt the design for the Hero 7? It's just a matter of adding 1mm to the height, the rest fits nicely.

Oh hey actually that original 1mm taller version is still in the download pack. It's the first file.

Hero7 has the same dimensions as I'm getting from calipers on my Hero6 -- 44.9mm tall

I originally designed the mount 1mm taller, but the camera kept falling out in crashes. It's meant to be a tight fit, printed in TPU with some flex. Double check your scaling settings?

Thanks for your reply! Scaling is on point, I measured the printed part (printed in TPU 95A) and it's 44mm tall. It's a very very tight fit, so much so that it took me a good 45 seconds to get the gopro out. I was really interested by the version 5 but I guess I could live with the first version too. Tip in the future if your print is too big or small, you can dilate the print in the X-Y plane with the feature usually called "XY size compensation" or something like that. Simplify3D and Slic3r PE have it. It doesn't scale the whole part but just dilates each "island" of the print, keeping the relative distances intact. I'm a supporter of designing with the exact dimensions that things should have, then tune the fit with the slicer :)

Just added version 5.1! 45mm tall

Have you flown this yet? Do you strap the go pro down at well or tether it somehow??

I really like the design but I'm worried there isn't much plastic on the front of the mount because of the screen cut out.
It seems like a strike to the camera on a tree branch could tare that thin strip and eject the camera.

Would it be possible to have access to the source files to tweak a vision without the the screen cutout which might be a bit stronger?
Thanks.

Hey thanks for the feedback! I flew it this weekend and didn't break the front strap, but did manage to eject the gopro a couple times. At least the lens bumper stayed put :/

I'm uploading a v2 of the design with reinforcements around the LCD panel and top button, along with 1mm shorter overall height. This grips it much better.

Also uploading v3 with the front LCD covered.
