Bonehead Aero Helmet Camera Mount
Years ago I got tired of hitting my GoPro on the airplane’s ceiling and decided that there had to be a better way to capture video skydiving. Now many years later the products are well tested, solved many problems, and most importantly look good. A big thanks to Kevin Hockett for helping fund the research and development of this camera mount. Please remember this is technically still a prototype, however, it has proven itself on many skydives.
GoPro Low Profile Mounting Buckle – Required
In both of the images above, on the right is the required ‘GoPro Low Profile Mounting Buckle’. On the left is the standard GoPro mounting buckle. The Bonehead Aero Helmet Camera Mount requires the GoPro ‘Low Profile Mounting Buckle’ for proper installation of the GoPro onto the mount. On Amazon.com Prime, the official ‘GoPro Low Profile Mounting Buckle’ is included with the “GoPro Grab Bag” and only costs $14. Also, I highly recommend only purchasing official GoPro products. I have found that knock-off GoPro parts fail to meet the necessary tolerances and quality standards that the official GoPro parts more than exceed. Expect issues like sloppy mounting, weaker plastic, and difficulty removing the camera from the camera mount with the cheaper knock-offs GoPro mounting buckles and skeleton frames.
