Helmet Camera

Hi Fellow Biffas,
Does anyone know if there is a camera on the market that goes on a flip -up lid?
Enjoy The Ride!!!

Depends on your flip top. If it is a Sharp helmet where the chin guard flips right over to the back, forget it! However it only requires one surface on the side or top of your helmet that doesn't get clobbered when you lift your visor. There are many cameras that are small enough and have suitable mounting systems. Personally I prefer a bike mounted camera with permanent wiring. I worry that if I did come off with a camera stuck on my helmet it might encourage a broken neck if it hits the ground and doesn't immediately break away from the helmet.

I use a Roadhawk Moto on my Shoie Neotech and it works great.
