Magnetic camera attachment to paraglider

Our customer has attached a magnetic camera mount for his GoPro to his paraglider. For secure attachment, he decided to use our powerful magnets.

Camera magnetically attached to the paraglider

Hello magnet shop!

I attached my GoPro to the sail of my paraglider with pot magnets.

Self-made magnetic camera mount

I used the included black plastic plate with the built-in camera mount. On the underside I have attached 2 magnets with Patex diagonally opposite.
4 magnets would have been better. Unfortunately I only ordered 4 magnets. My planning was originally different. I will add 2 magnets to my construction – one at each corner.

I got a plastic spatula from the hardware store that I cut to the size of the plate. The corners and edges were rounded nicely so that the sail would not be damaged.
I compensated for the height difference between the magnets and the plate with a 5mm thick felt. This also protects the material.

Many greetings to Lohr!



Pot magnets – small and strong 

The special thing about a pot magnet is that the holding force is increased by using a metal pot. This is where the magnetic core is located. The adhesive surface remains free. It acts on one side of the magnet. The pot changes the magnetic flux and thus increases the force. Even relatively small magnets adhere very strongly. These magnets are versatile and suitable for both commercial and private use. For example, they can be used as gripping magnets for industrial applications for transporting steel and iron parts. They are called flat grippers. Such magnets are also very suitable for strong and quickly detachable fastenings without drilling. They are ideal for trade fair and shop fitting, as assembly magnets in private households, for hobby applications or other purposes.
