The Fat Gecko Co-Pilot makes it easy to mount any camera inside of your airplane for an unobstructed, hands-free view of your cockpit and the open airspace ahead. The retractable telescoping bar fits a variety of cockpit widths ranging from 36″ – 49.5″ and creates a stable suspended base for your camera between any two opposing windows. Two industrial locking suction cups secure each end to the window's surface for a trustworthy hold, even in turbulence, pressure changes and cold temperatures.
Fat Gecko Co-Pilot by Delkin Devices specifically designed for a driver’s point of view. Secure hanging device for aircrafts aviation antenna. Positions for quality reception and visibility.
Attach any camera to the built in standard tripod thread in the center of the bar and lock in your angle to capture the open air or instrument panel, the pilots actions for in-flight training sequences, or the thrilled looks on your passengers’ faces behind you. Once attached, the camera can be adjusted to shoot up or down, turned sideways or even reversed by loosening the two adjustment knobs on the mount.
Co-Pilot is good to shoot video where you can see out the front of the plane, and see both front seat occupants. Action Cameras like GoPro (with an adapter) fit perfectly on this mount. Video and still cameras up to 5lbs are supported by the Co-Pilot as well.
How does the Co-Pilot Mount in My Airplane?
The Co-Pilot utilizes patented industrial suctions cups designed to carry plates of glass. The suction cups reticulate, meaning they can be turned at various angles by loosening the tightening knob. You simply push a button on the top of the suction cup, removing the air and causing a solid seal, and then push the locking tab upwards. This makes the Co-Pilot virtually “locked” to the window. To remove it, simply release the locking tab, and break the air tight seal on the suction cup by pulling up on the small plastic tab on the cup itself. The Co-Pilot has a suction cup on both ends, allowing you to secure it to the right and left window. This creates a stable base to mount a camera
Once mounted, the camera simply screws on to the 1/4 -20 standard post. This is the same post on all tripods and mounting hole on all cameras.
