Cool Anyone ever suctioned/attached a GoPro to a disc?

Has anyone ever suctioned/attached a GoPro to the top of a disc? Just not sure of the practicality/possibility of it. GoPros are really very light but would take some distance off your throw of course. I just wonder if you measured out the disc and placed the GoPro in the true center of the disc if it would maintain flight long enough to get that kind of video.

Any thoughts?

Not sure if it was a GoPro or not, but Tim has.

Here's the video for those that don't want to click the link.

He drilled a hole, and the used low friction bearings.

I would love to see this done with a camera that stabelizes the image better!

The keyword is 'rotational mount' in the description for the video

Very cool indeed

Has anybody flown a drone with a camera over a DG course? I'd like to see overhead pics of discs making hyzer flips, threading thru wooded alleys, etc.
