    I havent made any custom mounts for my go-pro yet. However, many of my friends have the contour and I had some request to make an adapter that would allow the coutour to be used with the go-pro mounts. So I made this using a 3d printer:

    You might want to try a heavy duty book stapler for the straps. Much easier then sewing.

    After cruising through this thread; I figured I'd better upload some pics and vids of my homemade mounts.
    First mount is just a short boom i made from some aluminum shower channel, a chunk of old handle bar, and a recycled lock on grip.




    Next is a chest mount. I used a 3M GoPro mount on the front of my 661 Coresaver. I was concerned about 3M mount coming off; but has put up with alot of use with no issues so far.

    Last is what I call the unicorn or narwhal helmet mount.

    Nice job!
    That's the kind of stuff I like to see - something I can learn from.
    Thanks.

    just wondering...how do you post a photo? I have a contraption I made but am not sure how to put the picture on the forum.

    I know, it's probably something simple but I can't seem to figure it out.

    It has to be a link to photo that is already on the web. Upload the photo to Facebook, etc., and find the URL of the photo. Post that here.

    After about 2 times switching and then readjusting the angle of the gopro on the helmet I decided to mount a gopro mount onto the top of a gorillapod. Makes it soooo much easier to quickly take a gorillapod shot and then right back to the helmet.

    I didn't want to spend $40 on a chesty mount so I took the headband mount and turned it into a chesty mount. I opened the part that wraps around your head most the way, then I spilt the over the head strap down the middle. It ends up fitting just like a Chesty mount and has 4 points of support like it and is nice and steady. It does help that I'm only around 160lbs, because if I was much bigger it wouldn't work.

    The link to your first photo is:

    Take this, click the photo button and add the URLs. They can be found by right-clicking on a photo and go to properties. Copy and paste the URL.

    Last year I had created my own GoPro "Chesty" chest harness for my GoPro Wide as well. My first attempt at this used only the straps and mounts that were included with the GoPro. Since my first attempt, I have upgraded to padded straps as shown, but this is not necessary.
    NOTE:
    I did not come up with this design, but I tried to improve upon what I have seen on this forum.
    Thanks to "LeeL" for posting his design on this forum for me to try to copy.
    The rest of the pictures of my design, and some descriptions of the design, can be found here:

    Not to Hijack the thread but if you hold down Ctrl & then click it is the same as right clicking. You can also configure your mouse and or trackpad to right click as well.

    So here is prototype #1, of my R/C zipline dolly. It uses a brushless motor and LiPo battery system. as it sits, it can reach about 35mph.

    I'm buying this for my Gopro once it hits the market. The ability to change directions and angles quickly and mount and dismount quickly is fantastic.

    Pretty cool, but I bet the price on this will be in the $500+ range.
