Default Best way/Camera to video flying by myself?

I want to be able to video my planes flying. Is there a video camera I can attach to my ball cap or something like that? I want to buy quality equipment, so recommendations would be appreciated. THANKX in advance for your help. Charlie. . . . .

I would think a Go Pro would be your best bet. Some adjustment to get the camera to capture what you are looking at. The problem is small movements of your head will shake the camera quite a bit. I remember watching the Blair Witch Project movie and almost getting sea sick.

One idea comes to mind. In pylon racing we are required to wear hard hats when we fly, and some pilots mount a camera on their hard hat. Might look kind of funny to the casual observer, but it works.

The Go Pro has a helmet mount for motorcycles, bicycles, etc. I'm sure it would stick fine to a hard hat too.
