Mounting a go pro to a flex

Anyone ever tried to mount their go pros to the mask directly? I might just have to make a barrel mount. I wasn't sure if anyone might have some ideas however.

There are a lot of people who have made their own mask mount along bought custom 3d printed ones. If you have a roll-bar mount you can use that as a barrel mount or rig it to be a mask mount. If you want to make a barrel mount the most simple and cost effective way is to use one of those bike reflectors usually found on the seat post and then you take the slide mount or w.e its called that comes with your gopro(what the gopro comes mounted on, you can cut off all the square plastic around it.) Anyway you can screw the slide mount onto the reflector with a screw and nut and bam you got a barrel mount.

I dont recommend a mask mount if you are shooting a normal speedball marker because the hopper will get in the way. They do work great with magfeds. With the barrel mount though you get a lot of footage of the ground if you dont keep you're gun up so i recommend walking around holding your marker by the snatch facing forward, but you could always edit your videos and take all the ground footage out. I've also seen people make a 3rd person mount. They have a backpack and use pvc pipes to make a rig that films over their shoulder.

The Gopro is huge on a mask... I see more folks mounting the R7 on mask due to its smaller size.

Take a handle bar mount is push it through the vents on top of the mask.

The new Gopro session might be a good choice for the mask.

I had to google it.

It looks like a smaller Gopro without the LCD screen (the whole point to the massive normal Gopro).

You might as well go with an R7 or one of the other tube cameras if you're doing that, they're smaller.

Either the new Gopro Session or a bullet cam gives the best view of your game. I personally get sea sick watching games shot with a gun cam.

I recently picked up a Mobius cam. It is so compact, most players don't even notice it.

I have this mount http://unanistan.com/store/?model_number=1A and my Hero Sessions fits much better than a normal gopro because it is noticeably smaller.
Ill be taking footage with it this weekend.
