I don't think you *want* to attach the camera to the airframe, as vibration
(especially in a piston aircraft) will caues all sorts of problems. The
usual recommendation is to hand-hold, making sure no part of the camera
touches anything but your hands; this lets your butt serve as a vibration
damper.
