    I know we don't want to lose our Gopro camera in flight but it is a pain when you want to use it for something else .. having to look for the right allen key and then struggle with the tiny screws ... has anyone felt this or am I having a bad day ?
    Any ideas to any other solutions I was thinking of a elastic band ! :)

    Been thinking the same. What about an elastic ribbion with Velcro sewn on, pulled tight?

    I have used rubber bands since day 1 of having my P2. My Hero3 Black, even with the latest firmware occasionally needed battery pulls so those tiny screws are a no go for me (tried it only once and had enough of it). Two small bands and a plus a larger/thicker one wrapped around the GoPro twice. I suspect the rubber band method helped a bit in minimizing possible jellos in my footage.
