GoPro Hero HD2 Can't Post

I have one... it's awesome... I have yet to use it to its full potential - walking a dog and sleeping isn't extreme enough to warrant the use of the camera.

It's convinced me to book up some climbing and wakeboarding before I do my AFF, but I was wondering... for use as a helmet cam, my amatuer practical experience of the camera and general skydiving... is it a good/reliable/safe helmet camera to use for skydiving or should I invest in other mounts or cameras?

No, no, no and no.
Ask your instructor!

Perfectly safe, after several 100 jumps and a few years of experience.

In the UK you require a minimum of 200 jumps and a "C" certificate licence before you are legally permitted to jump with a camera, howsoever mounted.

Have fun on your AFF - once you have the jumps and licence requirements covered you'll probably already know where to go for further info about mounting your camera anyway.
