I think the helmet cam functionality of the Go Pro is not nearly as good as it's counter parts. Drift, Contour, etc. The alien antenna top mount looks kind of funny and is prone to getting knocked off. More then a few have been lost at Berthoud Pass because of this. Where it shines is the other mounts. The chest mount, leg mount, board mounts, and such are things that other cams just can't really do with the ease and functionality of the Go Pro.
