    Hoping someone who uses, or has used, a go pro on their buggy could let me know if a off the shelf mounting set up will work. or do I need to use a Gimble to get usable videos ? I know the cameras already have a stabilizing software. But is it enough?

    Thanks, Frank

    It depends on where it mounted, but the regular mounts can give good results. I like the tube clamp mounts the best. The stick on mounts on body panels tend to vibrate and pick up audio buzzes and squeaks. The stick on mounts are cheap enough to experiment with, so give them a try. Never used a gimble, so no input there. I hope to see some footage!

    tube clamps are my favorite. I have a mish mash of random mounts and brackets to get the camera where I need it.

    I've never had issues with just mounting on a roll bar or chassis part - they come out surprisingly stable. On bodywork, where it can vibrate? I'd be wary.

    a lot of it comes down to what you want in the view as well. rear roll bars and you get a lot of head and shoulders . front roll bar usually can get you front wheels/suspension in the mix. on the nose somewhere and it's scenery only ...
