Not wanting to pay $70 for gopro brand mount. I have seen other brands for half of that. Just seeing if anyone has any input on an off brand mount. Thanks in advance.

This one works pretty good and is a lot cheaper, mounts with the stabilizer. LINK

I got the one in this picture off of ebay a couple of years ago for ~$50 but I don't remember what the company name was. The mount itself is just the metal portion and I added the Sims mini stabalizer. It works with all Gopro cameras the one in this pic is the Session which is great for bow hunting. This trip was my first mule deer spot and stalk and the video I got of it was 25 minutes long and looked like the Blair Witch project LOL. These cameras are great for WT hunting out of stands where you aren't moving all over the place. Last season I started using the one on my bow as well as one mounted on a tree or feeder pen so I would get the shot view and POV from behind the animal. Activate both cameras remotely from the Gopro phone app. The only shot I got with that set up though was a doe very early in the morning and was pretty much useless. FYI Gopro's do not record well in low light conditions.
