I don't think it would work with a helmet on. The suction cup mount I have for it looks very similar to the GoPro suction cup mount. For automotive videos I'd much rather have the camera (GoPro or other) mounted to the car. Seems like it would be a lot less nauseating vs on a helmet.
I was more talking about using it on a helmet for the other motorsports, or mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, etc. They seem too bulky for that purpose. I'll try to post a picture later, since the photobucket ap wants to be a whore right now. Definitely would want the main camera attached in a stable position on the car itself for our purposes though. Maybe a aux camera like the smaller tube designed action cams put there. You should post a pic of how you've got the camera mounted, kinda curious how it's next to your head, unless you're really short, then I guess I can figure it out easily, lol.

Didn't know it still hadn't released. Sheesh, could've sworn they had said summer 2012 last, though I suppose they do technically have a couple more weeks before its no longer "summer".

Edit: stupid photobucket uploaded it 7 times and told me it failed all 7 tries too. :SMH:
