    I recently bought an AKASO EK5000, basically a £50 go pro
    The video quality is superb but it’s very wobbly when off road

    Is this a case if that’s how it is or can I do anything to make it better? I’m using a sticky base on the dashboard with 3 extensions to get it in position, I’m thinking of also screwing the base down but don’t know if that will help

    A gimble would sort that problem. But probably cost more than your camera! The problem with the camera is you will always get issues being on the dashboard. Tried a windscreen mount?

    Wear a helmet and mount it on the lid.

    Trials bike helmets are great. High neckline and open faced for excellent visibility and freedom of movement.

    I mounted my camera to the stalk of the rear view mirror. It was a bit awkward but it kept it firm enough to have no camera shake.

    I've ordered a suction mount, can invert the image in the camera so gives me more options for mounting

    Out of interest what vehicle are you using this camera in?

    It's not some sort of sports car with lowered suspension is it? :laughing:

    about as far from a lowered sports car as you can get

    Make a mount that clamps onto the headrest pins, makes nice and secure even in a rally car.
    Usually use a pole and some strong jubilee clips
