As the title.. what do you use?

My original gopro stickers didnt keep my gopro in place and made the cam sag if you get me?

Bought a 3M pack off eBay and they have started to do the same.

Its only a Gopro hero4 so plenty must use the mounting hardware with stickers.

Also I let the srickers and mounts fully cure before putting my cam on.

Cheers

I remember reading the instructions on the 3m sticky for my navigation and it said to stick on and let sit for 24 hrs before mounting the camera. I only use the GoPro stickies and have had good luck so far, the cam on the front of my helmet doesn’t move.

The design, and mounting system may extend your camera high and away from the base of the adhesive mounting. Once your bike starts to move and build speed the wind may jostle the entire camera. This shaking could eventually vibrate the glue lose.

I use 3M Extreme Mounting Tape. It can hold between 20-30 pounds. One thing I did that I think helped was to use a couple zipties to hold pressure over the mount on my chin bar for 12-24 hours.
I had to build up layers and cut weird shapes so the mount would stick on the right way but now that its been squished together its like one solid block.

One thing I did for my mic adapter is I took a lighter to the plastic housing and quickly heated up the surface, for some reason the texture on that badboy makes it impossible for it to stick to 3M Tape.

Thats exactly what I have had to do! Cut shapes out to make it mould to my mounting hardware.

I have applied even pressure for a few minutes then put the helmet on the mounting on the table for 24 hours to help bond it.

I find the camera is starting to sag downwards which is a nightmare! Grrr

I'm using a similar curved mount, granted I'm using a hero session so its probably alot lighter than yours. I havent had any sagging yet. I did have a instance where the layers came apart overnight, it was right under a vent where it was hanging so I assume the change in temperature did it. Now I only mount the camera when i'm ready to film. It's been about 4 months and no issues yet.

Good point about only having the camera mounted when you’re using it. If you leave it on there all the time, the weight could make it sag. Plus if you put your helmet down on the camera it could put added pressure on the mount.
