Noob Hypeye questions Can't Post

Hey, since I'm slightly OCD and won't cope well if I drill a hole in my helmet, find out I've put it in the wrong place, and then have to drill another I thought I'd ask -

For use with a Cookie cage, why go with the Hypeye D Pro over the Hypeye Mini - as the camera can be turned on manually?

Where's the best place for the Hypeye D Pro button, and would anyone worry about what the effect could be of having that chunky bit of plastic inside your helmet in an impact situation?

Helmet concerned is a Cookie Rok.

The "chunky" piece of plastic is of no concern. It has little mass and isn't going anywhere if you biff.
If you want to manually turn on the camera, then that's great too. The DPro will indicate you've properly turned on the camera.
The Hypeye mini has other advantages, such as setting zoom on certain camera models, and allows you to play back from the button/switch, amongst other things.
Either provide a solution; the question is which solution you personally prefer. I like having the button mounted flush on my helmets.

Do they both have debrief ports? That comes in very handy if you don't want to ruin the D plug port on your camera.
