    I know there is a GoPro thread, but i want to see your mounts! We all know you can stick the GoPro on just about anything you want to! Instead of buying the chest mounts, tube mounts, etc.... i wanna see your homemade mounts! Here is mine. Its a Pole mount that has the tripod mount on the end of it; it extends up to 6'.

    I'm thinking about trying to make a chest mount!

    Picked the pole up at Walmart... The camera can maneuver just as it does on any GoPro mount (foward/backward) Then up and down with the pole extending in or out.

    Sometimes I fab up ghetto mounting solutions in a pinch. This was for tubing so it would float.

    I had one ziptied under my fairing of my motorcycle and it came off when driving and tumbled on the pavement pretty bad. It actually stopped the recording because the card popped out inside the case and I still salvaged the video about 15-30 seconds before the drop. I was glad to see that in case of a card popping out or a battery running out you don't lose a whole clip, just right before the incident.

    Made this one about a week after getting my GoPro because I didn't see any in the marketplace that suited my needs and were reasonably priced:

    And then after taking it out and using it a few times, deciding what I did and did not like about it, I came up with a pole that floats itself and the camera above the water not just keeps it from sinking. Rhino lined so it has grip everywhere, along with a paracord leash which tightens and loosens via a 'monkey's fist'. Both ends are fire-blocked off so if an end happens to come off during some extreme usage it will, hopefully, retain its buoyancy.

    I made quick pole extensions from 1/2" electrical conduit (plastic) which is like $1.50 for 10ft. Cut it to the length you need and then use a heat gun to make one end very soft. Shove the longer GoPro double sheer mount extension into the soft end and when it cools it molds around and is very snug.

    Anyone have any backpack style mounts? I just ordered a black edition and I snowmobile a lot, looking into different ways I can mount it while riding. Thinking on the hood pointing back, front a backpack over the shoulder, and maybe on the rear tunnel. Any ideas?

    You could try building this back pack mount out of PVC.

    He made it from his original over the shoulder body mount

    Make or buy the arm, where you can mount it on the back of your snowmobile extending back further so you can get shots of your entire body riding it.
