    Best tape to mount Sony Action Cam?

    I have the Action Cam and the waterproof helmet mount housing, and I'm wondering how other people have attached this mount to a full face helmet. Was gonna try a double-sided tape, but I'm looking for suggestions.

    1. You could use a suction mount. I have used it on my snowmobile helmet going 130km without a problem. I used RAM MOUNTS.
    2. I use GoPro mounts on both my helmets and adapted my cameras to fit the GoPro. You can buy an adapter with a threaded post (for the camera) that mounts to the GoPro mounts. Very cheap and versatile. (New tripod mount for Gopro HD Hero Hero2 Hero3 camera | eBay)

    3M VHB tape is one of the strongest foam tapes out there for plastic to plastic bonding. We use it here at work to bond heavy plastic cased batteries to metal enclosures, and they are almost impossible to remove.

    I just mounted mine up to my full-face with the stock tape that comes on the underside of the mount, then as a security measure, ran some zipties from the mount into the helmet in case it were to come loose. It survived the Megavalanche course last weekend....but the damn housing fogged up to the point of the video being unwatchable. Definitely drill out the housing for ventilation...

    I have a ContourGPS, it has a similar bullet shape.
    I've never used any special/factory mounts. I just
    used strips from an old inner tube that I cut up. You
    could try attaching the cam with or without the
    housing on the left or right jaw area of the helmet.
    Looping some strips of inner tube thru the porthole
    of your helmet.
