This was the combination of a loose Trakker mount and loose pylon (both noticed after the fact).  After the handle pop, the FlipHD plastic body separated from the metal mounting bolt (which was still tightly screwed down to the Trakker).

 Anyone else having durability issues with their Flips, before I write this off to a fluke and buy another one?

The picture is so much better than it was with the camera mounted just to the bottom bolt. I also do not have to adjust the camera left to right angle each time. I just stick it in and ski.</font>

    That is a fine piece of work - thanks for sharing that photo.

    If you can do that in moderate volume, I bet trakker would sell that as an accessory.
