    GoPro Session 5 mounting options on Traxxas Aton

    My wife bought me a GoPro for Christmas and I now want an Aton. I run a few Traxxas RC cars - Xmaxx and Stampede and have a few 3S battery packs. Do the Traxxas 3S 5000 Lipos work with the Aton?

    What's the best way to Mount my new GoPro and I presume I don't need the Aton plus thanks in advance.

    The 2872x 5000mah 25c will fit , the wires are a bit longer than the Aton specific battery but it will tuck in the battery box .

    The 7908 Aton comes with a fixed mount that'll work fine with standard Gopro mounting accessories

    So am I right in thinking a standard GoPro Mount fixes straight on to the Aton Mount without the frame ?

    The GoPro Session will work with the Aton fixed mount, but will not work with the 2 Axis gimbal mount.

    So just to clarify...if i buy the Aton without the gimbal mount I can use the GoPro standard flat adhesive mount (the one that came with my Session) on the bottom of the body?
    Went to buy a lipo, walked out with a XMAXX.

    I've got my sesson 4 attached with double sided tape to the gimbal (and rubber band safety straps. It works. but it isn't pretty.

    If you use the non-Aton Traxxas 3S 5000 MAH batteries you should do this to make it easier to fit them without having to bend the wires as much:
