FT210 HD camera mounting

Hi I am new here.
I just built the FT210 quad and have gotten to the point where I am flying it more than crashing it. So now I want to buy a camera like a Go Pro session or Polaroid cube and get some footage of my relatively tame flights. Thing is I am not sure how I would mount that cube style of camera to my quad, as that frame is more set up for a front to back strap rather than a left to right strap, which would block the entire camera sensor.

So my question is, has anyone else securely attached any of those cube style cameras to their FT210's, and wouldn't mind showing off how?

There are many things on thingiverse of you own a 3d printer or people to buy them from if you do not. That being said Mr. Steele just di a video about mounting the new hero session 5 using some ones newly printed mounts. Most people simply cut dense foam and Velcro strap their action cameras to the quads.

I made a couple modifications to Jimmy's part. I moved the ramp back, opened up the middle, and created several angles. My camera is mounted in the further back position and I could see the part on the top my FPV picture. With the ramp moved back you do have to cram the battery right up against the camera though.

The parts are here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2101343

On another note I found that I may need to cushion (soft mount) the Session as this mount is very rigid. 20170210_160244.jpg 20170210_175104.jpg

What would you charge to make one of these and ship it I don't own a 3D printer
