The FPV shoulder mount is ingeniously designed as an alternative to goggles. You can now keep an eye on both the aircraft and monitor (like a review mirror on a car). The mount is fully adjustable to position the monitor in the best spot, giving you the best of both views. The design transfers the weight to the shoulder and back; this and the stabilizing strap provide ample security for the largest of monitors, you could even run with it. By putting the monitor in glancing view vs. looking down or in a fixed position like on a tripod you can now keep the aircraft in view and in orientation, making the transition from FPV to line of sight flying seamless. You could even use the shoulder mount to take pictures of yourself.

What a fantastic bit of gear...less tripod setup time= more flight time.I had this mount assembled and on the shoulder in under 5 minutes...brilliant. Monitor fits great, even space under extension arm for a small 3cell battery for the monitor. Would recommend shoulder mount particularly for those who wear eye glasses.Great for aerial filming, much better than those supports for the tx because you have the monitor in front of your eyes constantly so no need to look away from the drone, you always have both (drone and monitor) into your FOVI Really like this shoulder mount! It puts the monitor exactly where I want it and makes it very easy to watch the monitor and keeping an eye on the drone at the same time! For me, this is a must have.35 including DHL direct shipping from Hong Kong to the UK......Ordered Saturday, arrived Tuesday. Puts your Monitor right in front of your eyes with fine adjustment available....Stand or sit with it, it has a quick clip safety strap if you want to be mobile...allows pointing of your directional antenna while watching signal strength...As a Design Engineer, I was pretty impressed with it with regard to comfort and function....LOS to Monitor and back again really easy....Downside...some parts are coarse threaded into the plastic....a little grease on the threads....DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE SCREWS and it will be fine.....A great product, but once again, not stocked by our UK Warehouse staff.........WHY H. KING?First of all- this is a cool thing if you wont go for goggles! You can modify the distance to your head and this really to work out for you
Easy to mount, nice on the shoulder, fits every camera mount/screw (1/4" i think)
The Elements are of plastic and wont last that long. The metal bolts, which are within the elements will be ripped out while you make it fit for your use. You need to keep that in mind!
The mount is cheap and works fine for flying FPV! You have LOS (the Line of Sight) and the monitor right in front of you which makes you pretty flexy while switching from LOS to FPV and back- No "oh-crap" moment where you need to seek the plane in the sky! Just remember to be careful while pulling the screws tight or the mount elements will break apart!
... I'm about to reorder it :)I wasn't expecting much from this but was quite surprised when I open the box. It comes with a fancy carry bag. The unit itself feels like its spring tensioned so it clamps on to your chest. You can get away without using the shoulder strap but would use it just for insurance purposes.
Solid build, great price and multipurpose. I can use it for steadying DSLR video. Too bad its been on back order for so long.
