Shoei adv hornet & drift ghost
« on: April 29, 2018, 02:00:05 PM »
Hello all.
I have a shoei adv hornet helmet and I'm looking at purchasing a drift ghost hd camera. I wanted to fit the camera to my helmet but because of the peak I'm not sure that will be possible.  Has anyone else fitted a camera to this helmet and if so where?
Thanks in advance.

I have the same helmet so will be interested in what people say, as I’d like to get a camera fitted too.

I have the same helmet and a drift ghost HD 1080 , I looked at a few you tube videos , purchased the curved mount , placed that on the right hand side of the helmet, just about in line with visor hinge, I ensured the mount self adhesive pad was in full contact with the helmet, marked it, give it a good clean , put it back on marked it again, took a deep breath removed the tape on the mount pad and placed it on.
I then adjusted the mount on the drift , I clicked it up 2 positions so the camera was pointing upwards, then started to adjusted the lens .
So far I am happy with the recordings I am getting, you do see a small amount of the chin of the helmet and a fair amount of the windshield , you also get the clocks and a good bit of the road ahead.
I also purchased some flat mounts and put 1 on the top of the spot light housing, this is a clear view of the road ahead, I am yet to put a mount for a rear view yet, will get round to it this weekend.

For me, fitting a camera to the side of the helmet gives a better angle of view, you don't look so much of a tit and it's unlikely to affect the helmet integrity in a crash (my wife was advised not to fit a Hero type camera to the top of her horse riding hat for this reason, Police/ BHS)
I'll never be old enough to know better !
