If you want to rig a big camera to a car, you need quite a bit of building to do so. But if all you want is to mount a small GoPro, here is a clever mounting way courtesy of Chadman108.
The mechanism is based on a tripod and three suction plates (pretty similar to Cineskates’ CineSquid only with a tripod).
After removing a tripod’s spike’s they are replaced with mini ballheads attached to the mentioned suction plates via aluminum stock. The combination of variable length legs along with flexible-angled vacuum plates allows the tripod to rest in various positions covering almost any desired coverage of the car.
Here are two videos taken with the rig. One of “regular” overhead footage, and one pointing at the wheel of WRX while it Gravel launches @ 120fps.
