    Dirt Cheap GoPro Roll Cage (video)

    Here's an inexpensive roll cage I made using a pair of 3/32" steel rods



    As you can see, I bent the rods into loops and shoved them into the existing extra holes on the #6840 GoPro mount, then zip tied them together

    Ultralight, ultra strong and best of all, ultra cheap

    Cool idea!!!

    I have mounts made for my Scaler, rock crawler, and my 2x4 Slash, but I still need to rig something up for my 4x4 Slash.
