Braden Bradford is a Nottinghamshire, UK, rider and champion. Here he shows a mounting position for a Flymount/GoPro combination which gives a great new angle. Flymounts are durable and light, ideal for holding action cameras secure during the hammering a BMX rider gives to all his gear.
We changed the angle of the GoPro around the bike to get new views as Braden practised on track, then chose the best sequences for editing. Surprisingly, shots from the bike are pretty stable and give a much more immediate feeling of speed and action than the usual head mounted footage.
You can put a Flymount on most round bars so changing the angle of view is fast and simple – great for experimenting and getting shots of your friends and competitors to build a story about your day.
