timmytard I just got a gopro as well, first day I used it same thing.
Except luckily I seen it flying through the air.

Had to stick it in my pocket after, so it got covered in shit.

I've since used contact cement & it works a little too good.

When I stuck the mount on my helmet, it was a tiny bit crooked.

I can't budge it or even twist it back one bit.

It's just dollar store bike tire contact cement.

Easto I have seen a few people with the vented helmet strap. Looks like the strap feeds through the helmet vents and secures the camera on top of the helmet. Might be another option that doesn't rely on the adhesives.

Kevin137 I have seen this happen many times, i have the Sweet Grimnir Mips, which has a plate for mounting GoPro or Contour, this then bolts to the Helmets through pre fitted holes.

The advantage is that the mount is bonded to the go pro mount and then bolted on, so it cannot fall off, but then it is an expensive helmet...

This happens but I still think it's your best option.

Possibly drill through both and bolt the mount to the helmet. No idea what this will do to the structural integrity of the mount or helmet, so if you do this its at your own risk !!
Thanks for the advice. I just ordered a couple of GoPro tethers from Amazon. They should definitely help me avoid losing my camera again.

Best way to mount a GoPro to a helmet.

So I've got a GoPro Hero 2 that I mounted to my helmet using curved adhesive mounts. It worked well for a while, but after a particularly hard fall the adhesive mount detached from my helmet and I didn't notice my camera was missing until I got down to the base. Thankfully, some honest person found my camera and turned it into the lost and found. But ever since then I've been leery about using those adhesive mounts again (especially since the employee at the lost and found desk told me that this is a common occurance with people who use adhesive mounts).

So, what are some good ways of mounting my GoPro to my helmet so that it won't fall off so easily?
