I have a final version here with a clear plastic housing and better buttons/doors. I'll post some pics of that in a few. Chutingstar received several of these finished products a week ago, but most of those were pre-sold... There may be one left.
That small lot was the first batch and I wanted to verify they worked 100% before ordering large quantities... so in another couple weeks there should be more available.

Saw a friend with an inline skate wrist protector simply modded into a wrist mount. Also a simple route to go down if you take the home engineering path
Home engineering works great for some applications. When you're doing hundreds or thousands of paid handcam jumps, though, it's good to have the right tool. Some benefits include: Much lower snag risk, wide base for stable camera, so it doesn't bobble around in freefall, rounded back so it's not a block (once again bobbling around at 120mph), instant access to cards, easy-push rubber buttons, easy access to the glass lens cover, so you can clean it on the ride to altitude, holes in place for the microphones, so you get quality sound instead of muffled low freq
