The GoPro Gravity Slider is a custom mount for a GoPro that allows it to shoot footage of an object as it is falling. If you drop the object and the GoPro at the same time, you'll see the whole fall down to the bottom. Then the object will splash or splat or break in some other way.
Or just watch the video below and you'll see what I mean.
Step 1: Stuff!
Step 2: Printed parts
If you don't have a 3D printer, you can easily make these pieces with some scrap wood and a drill press. Instead of the custom GoPro mount that's automatically included, you can attach a regular GoPro mount onto the wood with the included adhesive.
STL files are included below.
Step 3: Attach first end cap
- drill pilot holes
- place rubber spacers over holes
- attach cap with wood screws
Step 4: Attach second end cap
Step 5: Attach slider
Step 6: Attach the GoPro
Once that's on, put some padding behind the case and secure the GoPro to the slider with some tape. Here I'm using two small strips of Gorilla tape. This last step helps to keep the camera from rotating on the mount on impact.
