Excellent video! How do you find the weight of the Max in the line mount, since the cam is quite heavy compared to Session for example?
And what line mount do you use?

Thanks!
I only tested the gopro max in 25+ knots for now, and the weight wasn't a problem at all. The kite was still drifting very well (I'm used to having a session 5 in the lines).
I use the u-go mount.

Here is another version with a little more reframe work:

That's pretty sweet! Do you have the MAX in a case, or just mounted nacked on the u go mount?

Go Pro 8 Max/Hero have automatic horizon leveling, but considering its 360 it can be done in post-processing anyway. But this is really cool, because you dont have to spend time on post..

Watch this one, pretty sick:
