2-way tape for HD cameras

I just got a HD camera and want to know what kind of 2 way tape you guys use to hold the mount to your helmet. I just don't want my new camera to fly off my helmet while I'm flying down the highway.

that's what Gopro's adhesive mounts use.

Just make sure you clean down what ever you stick it to with rubbing alcohol or similar and let it set for at least 12 hrs preferably 24.

The 3M velcro stuff works pretty well too.

Don't use tape for your expensive camera. get a contour or a gopro for that

How about 3M VHB tape? Will it hold at 100+ mph?

I don't think it is a good idea to use tape for your camera, actually there is an action helmet camera out there that sell in discounted price, why you don't try to use them for your adventure.
