Multiplex Easy Star 2 Camera Carrier

After buying my Go Pro Hero 3 I wanted to attach it to my MPX Easy Star 2. I was looking for a method, which was firm, safe and removable(!), so I was able to use the plane without the weight of the Go Pro. Just like a stock Easy Star.

Having seen it on the internet, I wanted to replace the cockpit by a custom built camera carrier. This is what I did:

First I made a template from cardboard. From this forms I cut wooden pieces.

Afterwords I glued the wooden pieces using two component epoxy resin.

To fix the the carrier I took a Velcro strip, originally used for holding together skiers:
