The Fly6 is a great rear safety camera, but the ONLY mount available for it is a seat post mount. This means it's useless if you use a rack trunk bag or a garment bag that sticks up very far (very nice bags for commuters). Also the rubber bands that mount mine started getting degraded after only a few months and I was nervous about trusting a $150 camera to a rubber band.
There's support struts printing inside the camera mount - remove them with side cutters and trim up carefully with a knife. Some trimming may be necessary depending on the tolerances of your printer. The mount is intended to be very stiff.
This could easily be mirrored in SCAD if you want to mount it on the right side.
I would caution - be very sure that you are printing at a temp that ensures good layer bonding. The ridge that holds the camera in place is cross-layer so if your layer bonding is weak the ridge could snap off and drop the camera. Mine has been good for a week now including riding at speed over a rough railroad crossing on 100psi tires.
I will be posting a safety lanyard attaching bit later on, look for that just in case.
