Top mounting options for a Cookie Fuel Can't Post

I recently bought a Cookie Fuel helmet and am considering turning it into my main camera helmet. I'm looking into options for topmounting cameras.

I would like to topmount my cameras on the helmet. I'm well aware of the new flatlock adaptor that Cookie has brought out for the Fuel, but I don't think that is give me enough space to mount my cameras.

I would like to topmount either a GoPro and a CX or a GoPro and a Sony NEX camera. I've seen the topmount plate for the G2/G3 (https://www.chutingstar.com/...ra-mounting-platform) and am wondering if that would fit on top of the Fuel. Anybody know?

Any other advise is welcome.

Hi Karma,

We have a solution in the works, we are not too far away from releasing it.

How do you have that GoPro mounted on there?? And is that just the Liquid Flatlock Helmet Adaptor for your still camera? Looks like exactly what I had in mind!

I'm running a similar set up. I think it was the curved flatlock adapter for the gas helmet to put the flat lock on and just a random combination of go pro snag hazards to keep the gopro out of the still camera's frame.

What is the best way to mount a CX410 onto a flatlock adaptor? Loving the duel mount solution by the way. It would be interesting to hear if the helmet will come pre drilled for the hype-eye?

What's going on with your GoPro mount? I really like the look of it from the angle in your picture. Is there a connection on the rear door of the case or is the rubber band holding it together?

I decided not to wait for the option cookie had brewing last year, but instead asked somebody to help my out by building a custom mount as a platform for the camera's.

I can now mount both my camera's side by side for photo/video jumps. If need be I can remove them and mount a GoPro in a rollermount for AFF-jumps.

I think it turned out great!

I think it looks pretty slick!

How tight is it against the helmet around the edges at bottom of the mount? Any chance of HMA or micro-line that is under force jamming under there between the mount and the helmet?

Hey Guys!

Has anyone tried installing an x-shut mount on top? And maybe also a go pro in the front?

I'm considering mounting my Nex 3 camera on top and an upside down mounted GoPro in front with a J-hook mount.

Any thoughts?

UPDATE: Top mounting options for a Cookie Fuel [In reply to] Can't Post

I modified my GoPro Mount a little by now.
It is a regular GoPro quick release attached to a backdoor mount which comes with the "GoPro sportsmen mount".
In addition to that I chopped of the 2 "feet" of the GoPro case which allows me to take the camera out of the case while mounted on the helmet without changing the angle of the camera.
