Default Best setting for aerial video on go-pro 2

aside from mechanical vibration limitation and padding.... what's the best setting for Go-pro 2 video during flight to look the best? Frame rates and resolution? Thanks for the input!

Many people use 720p 60fps cuz it helps to reduce jello.
I use 1080p 30fps setting though :p

Thanks very much for the reply. Any tips on securing it to the main frame? The tighter the better or best to have a foam padding?

I shoot at 1080p also, (thats why I bought a GoPro), with a rigid mount. Works real nice.

It depends on your aircraft. I have some budget mounting method either on 450 size helicopter or quadcopter. Have a look at the photo sections on the following page.
