Default Cheap Action Camera-Helmet Front mounting<solved>

Earlier this year I bought a cheap Action Camera and wanted to mount it on the front of my Motorcycle helmet.I made a Webpage for the work I did,

https://cx500.000webhostapp.com/Acti...ionCamera.html

I'm sure some people will find it useful if they want to front mount this kind of Camera.

The Orskey Camera will never be,"Go-Pro" quality but it's usable

Good work.

The glue might invalidate the helmet warranty, if that's an issue - I know the instructions sometimes specify that nothing should be glued to the helmet.

I'm wondering if it would be possible to fabricate a clip that goes under the chin?

If you do happen to crash & faceplant, you realise the camera might end up pointing up your nose?

My present helmet is now over a year old so out-of-warranty.As for up-the-nose Camera work I think that would be the least of my worries
