May be flying above water with my acro quad... Floating/recovery ideas? [R]

Obviosuly don't crash, but these miniquads aren't reliable enough in my opinion to completely trust it. It probably wont but the in event it does I want some way to recover it... Will be flying above a deep lake. Best way to make a Martian II float? Or any good floaty popup string things?
It is waterproofed...

You could zip a few of the GoPro Floaty backdoors to the bottom plate of your frame. It shows $14 for me but there's some sold by Amazon for $6 if you look at the sellers list.

They're meant to make a 165g GoPro (with case) float so it might take 3 or 4 of them although you could test it with just 2 to see how it does.

Edit: this actually seems like a cool idea so I just grabbed some for myself so I can fly over the lake behind my house without worrying. The $6 price is legit.

For those of you using GoPros [R]

My Hero4 hasn't given me any reason to upgrade, so I'd highly recommend it. Also, invest in a floaty backdoor, it's a life-saver.

What Go-Pro accessories do you use? [R]

I just got a Go-Pro Hero4 Silver and was wondering what accessories I should get to snorkel with?

Trip to Costa Rica with my new GoPro. I have questions! [R]

UPDATES in [Brackets]

Alright! I am taking a trip with my girlfriend at the end of december for three weeks to Costa Rica. I was able to obtain a GoPro 4 silver for relatively cheap, but it had no accessories (outside of the standard waterproof housing). Here is a short list of the things we will be doing:

  • Scuba off the coast

  • Zip lining in Monteverde

  • Hiking a couple of volcanoes

  • Snorkeling at several beaches

  • Rafting at Arenal

  • Taking a small plane flight over the mountains

  • General hiking around and site seeing

To do all of this I have put together a list of items that I think will serve to get the best footage, ease of use, and packability.

  • 64gb Sandisk Extreme micro SD card, class 10, U3 x2 [Purchased]

  • Wasabi Power batteries (2 count) plus the charger [Plan to purchase]

  • Dive housing for the Gopro [Standard housing is good to 131ft, more than I need]

  • Red filter for 30+m diving depths [This plus a polarizer and 52mm adapter]

  • Camkix AntiFog inserts [Great for water related shooting]

  • Kingston digital 5 in 1 MobileLite Wireless G2 [Plan to purchase]

  • 1tb Seagate backup plus slim portable HDD [Purchased as a 2tb]

  • Joby GorillaPod with ball head mount and built in level [Purchased]

  • GoPole Evo 14-24" [Going to do a PVC build instead. Cheaper and customizable]

  • RAM suction cup mounting system [Purchased. Heavy, but extremely stable]

  • AmazonBasics head strap camera mount [Purchased. Replaced as sizing was too small]

  • Gopro tripod mounts [Purchased]

  • CamKix customizable XL case [Still determining which will be best]

  • Peak Design Capture POV action camera mount (possibly) [Too expensive and limited in its uses]

I am trying to get an idea of what I really need for the trip. The Mobile Lite and HDD allow me to forgo bringing my laptop making things smaller and lighter. Instead of purchasing the GoPole Evo, I also considered doing the DIY Monopole, but I am unsure if this would be adequate for diving purposes. The Peak Design mount seems intriguing for when we hike around, not having to always carry the camera on a pole, but I am worried that the footage will look to bouncy when hiking/walking. I am hoping that the XL Camkix customizable case will hold everything securely and safely while also not taking up too much room in my small day pack. The other possibility is to just have a dry bag with that I need for the day and shove that into my daypack and use the Camkix case for storage at the hostels/hotels.

Lots of text, but here are my questions:

  1. Do you have any experience with any of the adventures we will be embarking on, and if so, what type of equipment and camera settings did you use to capture it?

  2. Any suggestions on a relatively cheap selfie stick that I can take diving and also use where ever on a hike (I do want something that will pack a little small and not protrude too much from my pack)? [Self build PVC pole with some metal tethers for diving]

  3. I plan on shooting most everything in 1080p 60fps to have the ability to slow in down in post. Is there a problem of mixing 60fps and edited 30fps footage for a video? (ie. walking in the town at 60fps and a timelapse slowed to 30fps)

  4. For general hiking would it be best by wearing the head strap, Peak Design POV mount, or carrying the camera on a pole? I want to record somewhat passively, but do not have a problem switching mounts to get a good shot. [The Joby pod works great for a short handheld pole, but will use the self build PVC one too]

  5. Which Joby gorilla pod do you suggest? []

  6. Should I invest in an egg timer pan-er for the time lapses and if so which one? [IKEA egg timer build or similar]

TL;DR: Do I have the right equipment for my trip and what settings should I focus on shooting everything in?

Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to the responses!

whenever i see water, you better spend that extra 10$ for a back floatie . when hiking, it depends what style you want to take. you can have multiple angles to make the film look cool, or you could just have it on your head/body/backpack and record the entire hike and then do a fast foward clip of the entire hike. it's up to you. i think egg timers are awesome. it adds a little flare to a typical time lapse. uh... you may also want to invest in a polarized lens?

side note.... sorry for the lack of editing. the best advice i can give you about shots is to just watch other youtube videos of hiking/exploring/diving and take notes on what they did/what angle/ and if you can replicate it.

anyone bought any bundles they'd recommend from amazon? [R]

I have the Floaty Backdoor and it's great, I love it! If your are going to do water stuff you should consider buying one. Check this out on Amazon:

The Wasabi Batteries is a great choice, the best Batteries out there. Bought theme month after I got my Hero4 Silver and it changed the way I use my GoPro.

About the memory card, I have the SanDisk Extreme 64GB micro SD card. Again, one of the best out there. If you are looking for a high quality card, this is the right one for you.

The last accessory I can recommend for you is the GoPro Headstrap. You can use it for almost everything. Check this out:

Looking for some help in where and what to get to expand my GoPro gear collection. Definitely looking for quality, but at a reasonable price.

Things I think I'd like to get:

-floaty backdoor -tethers for ^ -maybe a new battery or two -second memory card? (Not sure if needed)

Any suggestions on where or what to get will be welcomed!

EDIT: Thanks for all the help guys! I will mention that I live in the U.S., but will be traveling to Europe. Sorry for confusion there.

This is the reason why you should invest in the floaty backdoor. For a little price this has saved me countless times and I'm far more relaxed using my camera in/around water.

Lost GoPro today at La Jolla Shores [R]

Hey San Diego!

This is a long shot, I know, but just in case you end up finding a GoPro attached to a head strap today or anytime in the future. I lost it at La Jolla Shores closer to the Scripps Pier side than La Jolla shores.

Lost it while boogie boarding today. Footage should include camping/hiking/backpacking trips in Anza Borrego, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and San Gorgonio!

Thanks fellow San Diegans!

If you find it, or get another one, make sure you get a floaty back:

Although there was a lot of mud it typically only reached my shoulders at most so I never really got it on my head or camera.

I bought 3 batteries off ebay and that seemed like more than enough. I kept turning off my camera after each obstacle but I could have kept in on the entire time and still had battery power left over with just two batteries. I also bought these anti-fog strips for the go pro on They worked great until I switched out a battery and managed to get water in the camera case.

I also got a go pro floaty which saved me on Walk the PLank. I hit the water and the camera came off my head. Luckily it floated right up to the top of the water.
