Cookie G3 Can't Post

Has anyone had success with mounting a gopro camera on a G3 and still able to open the visor?

Loads of people, but not all the way up
I have also seen a visor mounted one.

It will open far enough. Just don't stick it too close to the front. It will open all the way without the camera.

I have a G2, the concept is the same. You mount it far enough back that you can open your visor and see without obstruction but far enough forward that you can use the camera without having hours of video of the front of your helmet. Wink

How about mounting the gopro on the visor itself to keep a low profile?

Try the Contour Roam and the Cookie mount for it. Bad ass.

There are solutions for that, there's an aluminum piece that people have screwed to their visor, personally I don't want that on my visor, would make flipping it up pretty awkward.

Mchamp has it right, very good placement. I took my mount off a while back because I was doing a bunch of tunnel time, when I put it back on today, I put it too far forward. : (

Bumping this thread with something totally unrelated to a gopro Tongue

Out of curiosity, is it possible to jump the G3 without the visor installed? I assume it's pretty simple to do since the clips can be swapped out, but I'm not sure if it will have any adverse effect on the integrity of the helmet.

Don't know about freefall but Gary Connery used a G3 with goggles for his wingsuit landing. If you really want a definite answer, send an email to Jason at Cookie.

Thanks, I didn't even notice that! I sent Cookie an email a few days ago, while I was waiting for a response I figure I'd ask around (I think I'm a little enthusiastic Tongue).

Jeremy got back to me last night and said it can be done, so that clears it up!

Is that mounted with tape only? or screws?
