These are them, they're carbon so weigh nothing. Two of the pre drilled holes were about 1mm out so a little dremelling and they mounted perfectly.

I ordered some of the anti vibration things mentioned for use on drones a while back and finally got around to fitting them. I'm yet to test them but there isn't any reason they shouldn't work.


Do let us know if they reduce the jello-ing effect at all.

It reduces it yes, mainly the major wobbles but it still has a distortion around the edges. I think it's a combination of rolling shutter and the software trying to combat vibration.
I'm going out this week so I'll pull a video off to compare.

Iíve got the Akeeyo AKY-958 and Iím very happy with many things about it, including WiFi, DVR waterproof, etc. Hoping to reduce jello-ing further, but overall quite pleased.

Do any of these have some form of impact detection?

I was taken out by a car driver who forgot to give way at a junction last week and the first I knew was when I woke up in the ambulance! Obviously in the scenario i wouldnít have been able to save the recording as I was sleeping, but if it had some form of impact detection it would have auto saved the recording.

BTW my Versys is completely stuffed.

Yes. Mine had a G sensor that automatically records a clip to the SD card in the event of an impact. It records x number of minutes before and after. It also protects the file so it wont be overwritten.

Rigsville, I'm sad to hear of your accident and I hope that you are ok and not seriously injured.

Bad to hear about your bike being badly damaged. 

Hope that you are ok   :169:

Iím also sorry for your unfortunate mishap at the hands of another careless caged driver. AFAIK, all of the DVR systems offered for bikes have the G-sensor option and will lock the three (before, during, after) files in an 🆘 file folder and not overwrite them as the previous reply also affirms.

Thanks for everyones concerns, while I was, and still will be for a few more weeks, hopefully none of my injuries are permanent and won't stop me getting back on a bike...eventually.

Just have to decide what bike to buy, what do you recommend?   :152: :152: :152: :152:
