Hello guys and gals

I bought a second helmet mount for my Drift so I could use it on my main helmet as well as my "spare" helmet (in "" because I have been using it more than my main lately not that you're interested so I'll shut up about it now). The only place I can really put it is on top and am happy to do so for a different angle. My question is, to those of you who have done so, what sort of angle (pointing upwards, straight, downwards) do you have it mounted on top of your helmet?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

Pete

Do you plan to use the sticky mount or velcro?

I've used velcro for the second mount on mine.

I used the 2 of the Drift velcro strips, this allows me to move the camera forward and back to capture many angles, ie facing to the rear pointing down at the back of the bike or straight out and everything in between, or facing forward aiming at the speedo or at the sky, again everything in between

This is it mounted to show what im seeing



and this is the velcro strips

Right I have the Velcro stuck to the top of my helmet, I shouldn't have been naked whilst attempting this tbh, and I shall pop out tomorrow and test the angle.

Once again, now I'm going to use a freshly stuck on mount, I am paranoid about it falling off :D

Look through Chuckles85 videos' hes got a 'security' clip for his drift and looks very tidy.

I'm happy with my placement and the mount was secure enough. The only thing not quite right was the rotation of the lense as looking at the video I shot today, it was very slightly angled. Once I'd noticed it I had to Mae to adjustment even though it was minuscule as it started to annoy me.

Cheers for that 10feetup.

I bought some sticky back white velcro from Homebase for my old MD80, so rather than use the unsightly black stuff on my beautiful white helmet I put two parallel strips on top with a bit of leeway for error. Managed to get it pretty much spot on first time but having that little extra does no harm, I still have a gigantic black camera strapped to my head so the logic of minimising the visual impact kinda got screwed over.
