Decided I would go ahead and get this little project knocked out since my center shafts haven't come in yet.
I had a small chunk of aluminum plate lying around here so i trimmed it up and bolted it to the drivers side floor pan through the battery compartment.
I'll be sticking to a single Lipo pack...so that compartment won't be used anyway...and the Lipo pack on the passenger side should be just about a perfect counterweight for the camera which doesn't weigh much.
I didn't want to mount it on top for fear of it being (1) too top heavy,and (2) having a bunch of vibration being mounted to the thin plastic body of the truck.
I thought about mounting it on the back right above the roof...but this thing wheelies too easy already and doesn't need any more help from more weight on the back.lol.
Third choice would have been on the front...but I wanted some portion of the truck to be visible in any video i shoot.
Therefore I decided the side was the best location for what I wanted.
If it ends up being too heavy on the drivers side,I already have a solution planned.
When I cut out the bracket,I also cut out a mirror image one for the other side...and can get some flat carriage bolts to mount it and still leave room in the compartment for the battery pack.
I can add counterweights to this bracket to balance the truck.
Anyway...here's the pics.
Sorry...no video yet.
I'll get some asap.
