Smart Remote Mount/Housing on El Grande

[ Edited ]

So I spent £60 on the El Grande - its an amazing bit of kit. Solidly bulit, extends and locks securely. 

What I don't get is why GoPro haven't included a Mount for a remote. 

OK so there are different Remotes, so maybe that is why... so why not sell a mount in the shop that can be used. 

I considered using Velcro or Cable Ties and fixing it on the flat part just above the handle, but not sure its going to be as solid as a proper remote housing designed specifically. 

Kind of considering if I should have bought an alternative that was almost the same price but has this part - only put off by some reviews of parts breaking even on an expensive one. 

Come on GoPro can we have a mount/housing please.....
