Default editing software ?

I have a GoPro, but rarely use it because I'm not comfortable/happy with the software for editing the resulting 360 files. I use Apple computers. What editing packages are available for MacOS that aren't rented for $30/mo ?

I am finishing up on a selfie stick for the rear tie down - videos coming soon


my youtube channel is @rv12pilot for using different cameras and mounting locations.

I mounted the 360 under my wing and it works well for me. I can see the gear and pan around as I want. There is distortion because of the lens but you can get some pretty cool videos. The frame grabs for photos are much better than any other camera I have owned.

I understand the insta360 is a good camera too but I have not used one. Let me know if you need any info on how I made my mounts. Have fun!

Photos of your mounts, inside and out, would be appreciated.

So I assume the distortion is "fish eye" with bulging in the middle and tapering narrow on the sides. I would like to avoid that.
Has anybody tried the "hold the phone in the right hand and dip the left wing and shoot out of the left side of the canopy, and then dip the right wing, and shoot out of the right side of the canopy" method?
Does the canopy itself cause much distortion?

Have you flown in a 12?

Why not just try it?

Nope. My factory-build RV-12is is scheduled for sometime in '24. Never flown one. The nearest thing would be a Tomahawk about 15 years ago.
I did own a C-150 for 17 years, and I did use that method, and I would assume it could be done in an RV-12. What about canopy distortion?
I appreciate all of the feedback I have gotten thus far about camera types, camera mounts, etc.

I made a pair of "RV tiedown to GoPro" adapters for my -7A. If the -12's tiedown threads are the same, this might work. Bill of materials:

CAMVATE 1/4"-20 Male to 3/8"-16 Female Thread Screw Adapter

Mount Adapter Tripod Mount for Gopro Hero

Stainless steel 3/8"-16 bolts, 1-1/4"

3/8" nylon washer (optional)

I torqued the bolt onto the female end of the adapter and made it permanent with some red loctite. Cut off the bolt head and filed it down nice with a scotchbrite wheel. Thread the other end of the adapter onto the GoPro tripod mount. Nylon washer to protect the underside of the wing skin.

These doodads can thread into either of the three tiedown mounts on my plane, one on each wing, and one on the bottom of the tail.

I sent you a PM with contact info.

Look at the first 15 seconds of this and you can see the shadow of the pole mount under the wing.

Can anyone share experience in an RV-12 with a camera such as Go-Pro? Did you mount it inside? Outside? Did you get one of those 360-degree view types?
Any recommendations?
I've had good luck with the Insta 360n X3. Still learning a lot, but the possibilities are endless. Here's the second video I did:

Default Eyebolt Mount

I use the tie down eyelets with the MyPilotPro swivel mount.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

you can place it on either wing or the tail tie down. Doesn't have much upward visibility, but unless you're trying to do formation video, usually down is what I want anyway. I also just placed one of the adhesive go pro mounts on the canopy just in front of the latch. I don't have the sun shade installed so it's a clear view from behind the pilot/passenger if you use wide angle, but far enough forward to cut that out if you just want the cowling and the view.
