I’m actually very pleased with this setup! It’s exceeded my expectations and then some. The image stabilization of the GoPro Hero5 has done a brilliant done! The surface of the roads in this video are horrendous and in places it’s much like being on paths through the woods. The mount I use (pictured above) is very stable but there’s a very small amount of movement in the horizontal axis. Maybe that’s a good thing, I’m not sure but it doesn’t seem to have proved a problem. What I was looking for was simply a reasonably stable mount that would allow me to produce reasonably sharp and watchable footage and I think the Hero5 has delivered that well. I have a harness that I purchased in anticipation of this setup being a disaster but I don’t think I’ll need it now! Well chuffed!

What is the speed app on your phone? And what sort of mount are you using?
It’s called “Speedometer Pro”. The mount is Quadlock.
