"bumped my head on the door frame on exit unclasping the latch on the box. The camera popped out on exit at 12.500 and fell straight down onto the landing area at the DZ and was recovered by a fellow skydiver. It even caught our landings. Not one scratch on the body or lens. Still can't believe that I got it back and that it is totally fine. A buddy the same day who is one of our camera flyers had the same thing happen but with his SLR....not the same result. I'm definitely a gopro fan for life these little guys are bomb proof"

Oh and don't watch the video if you're pron to epileptic fits...

It's on my list of things to grab when tax season rolls around again when my disposable income is more flexible again.

I have tested it several times up to 180mph. It is bulletproof. It flew off the bike because I didn't clean the suction cup good enough and got ran over by a car. Still works. Bad ass camera. And reasonable price.

Hell, that clenches it.

Yeah as long as you wipe the bike and suction cup off with alcohol wipes (about $3 at any pharmacy) before mounting the suction cup works awesome - used at the track, on the street, etc. When it flew off I was only doing 40mph right by my house. I was in a hurry that day and just stuck it on without cleaning first. Hard mounts are much better and foolproof - just snap it on. But I use the suction cup to try different angles to determine where to put the hard mounts.
