    Can you show the actual mount and how it was made?

    It cost £5 to make, I just added a trolley coaster bolted to the crash helmet added a piece of PVC piping with one end weighted and gopro at the other, it spins 360 and also goes up and down so you get some great angles.

    How do you control it when you are riding?

    The videos I have seen using these don't seem to have any control, seems like force of jumping/turning moves it around giving a pretty consistent 360degree view. Only a few seemed to rotate at a undesired rate. Control would be cool tho

    No control just a good 360 degree video just a change from all the normal views you can get

    Wonder if raising it up about a foot would be beneficial. Can't really say till ya get a chance to test it out in the open, but ATM seems like there is a lot of head blocking the view. Not sure how you would make it stable raising it up tho. Very nice DIY regardless.
