I use a monopod camera arm, that has the articulating joints, like the gorillapods. I got it knock-off from Hong Kong on ebay for $5!!
They got here pretty quick, and not bad price. They fit pretty well inside 1/2" PVC with epoxy. I'll take a pic of my carmera arms when I get home tonight. Works well for the GoPro.

lol... YEP!! The Bomb

I Dremel'd off the suction cup. Then epoxy'd it into a 1/2 PVC Union joint. For the price, this one is nice, cuz it also includes the little threaded post for camera mount. I have a short camera arm and a longer arm. I have 2 gopro cams. 1 is mounted down low kind of off my left knee. The other is mounted high, off my right shoulder, looking down. It's ok.. but I usually run out of batteries, so mostly I just use 1 cam at a time.

I had a terrible day yesterday, and didn't get home until very late. I'll take some pics tonight and post.
