cookie composite black box and camera Can't Post

Those of you who have and are using a cookie composite box for their cx100. How or if you even do mount the camera in the box? There is a lot of extra space in this box so the camera can move.

I just finished setting up mine last week. It's the CX-100 box mounted to the side of an MXV helmet.

There isn't much room in the box. I found that the camera with the biggest extended battery (from B&H) won't fit. But with the way I set up my hypeye, it ate up more of that space, so I don't think anything but the standard battery will fit now. I mounted the hypeye in the rear of the box, on the inside, so only the button sticks out. It's super clean looking, but I did give up battery space for it.

Laterally, the box is pretty small too, so it took me a couple tries to get the wires of the hypeye to fit right. That being said, the cam can prolly rotate about the mounting screw a couple degrees if needed for adjustment.

Bottom line, I love it. But this is my first cam helmet, so take it for what its worth.

The camera is secured in the box with a screw through the bottom into the camera.

The CX100 Blackbox from Cookie is designed to fit snugly with the HypEye D Pro plug filling up the side and then the size 70 (mid-size) battery filling in the back.

That's what I was going to do was drill two small holes to fasten the box to the top of th ftp and them use a screw to hold the camera in place. I'm use to using bonehead and those boxs are really snug. I already have a hole to put the hypre eye in. Thanks
