Just watching videos on YouTube of Phantoms. And I got to thinking....
I use a UAV Bits Carbon Fiber Camera Guard, and was thinking about mounting my GoPro under it filming from behind.

Yeah it will add weight and take from flight time and I would have to hand take off and land but I think it would be kind of cool for a one time thing.
Especially if I can get the "behind" video in the corner of the P3 video. I would probably have to buy video editing software since the ones I have can't do that.

Anyone see any major problems with this crazy(stupid?) idea?

It should be fine weight-wise. A HERO4 Session would be your best choice if you want to go as light as possible.

Nothing planned really. Just watching videos and was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if you could see what was going on behind it?

My mind is always thinking up stuff. Sometimes it's a stupid idea, sometimes it's not. LOL
If I do something with this idea I will post the video...

Sorry if you misunderstood me.  Per your original post you watched a video on YouTube.  Can you post to the video on YouTube you already watched?

Instead of mounting there, why not mount it behind or under the battery? There are some great 3D printing guys on here, maybe someone can create a little clip that snaps onto the battery that the GoPro can slip into so that you don't have to worry about changing the way you land. Or if you don't use the VPS then you can pop that off and mount it there so that it doesn't throw the balance off or be too close to the props.
