Hey, I have mounted my gopro to my G3 visor and love it during freefall...great for coaching for good POV and for freeflying. It also good to mitigate snag hazards. Of note, if you flip your visor up under canopy, all you get is the bottom skin of your canopy. Instruction are here: http://deltagearinc.com/Kit&Tools/CameraMounts/go_pro_low_pro_mount.htm

Attached is a photo for you

Would you mind posting some more pictures.

Preferably ground close ups to show exactly how you mounted that?

And if you have time a description of how you did it?

I mounted my GoPro to lens of my G3; however, after a couple tests in the wind tunnel, I decided to move it to the top of the helmet. I loved the idea of mounting it to the visor because it's low profile, but I wasn't happy with the amt of vibration I noticed on the video, even after several modifications to try and dampen the vibration. I also noticed a couple of minor stress cracks (even though cushioned washers were used) on visor coming from holes needed to mount it there using the low profile mount. Unsure

...Of course, your miles may vary, but that was my experience.

Cheers!

Has anybody tried using the adhesive mount on the visor? I'm interested in the amount of vibration, especially whilst free flying. Being 6'1", I feel that I'm tall enough without the camera adding to that.
