New GoPro! Tips for mounting?

As the title states... I will soon be uploading some PB video! Any tips on how best to mount it to my mask?

I'm thinking off to the left somehow so the hopper doesn't block the view when I raise my marker... as it would if I put the camera on the right of the mask.

Tips?

Thoughts?

I didn't use any of the included mounting hardware, but I attached the case directly to the top center of my i4's by looping zip-ties through the attachment point at the bottom of the case and the vents above the lens. Then I used duct tape and double-sided adhesive tape to adjust the angle. It required a little bit of work to the mask itself, but only a TINY little bit to allow the camera to sit far enough forward.

I used a the Bike seat post mount and added rubber to the plastic that holds the barrel to keep it from scratching the barrel. Works good for POV video. May sell mine and get the R7 but I don't really use the camera all that much for PB. The Go pro works good for more then just PB.

Well played sir!
But I was solving the mounting issue
So technically: win!
