Rubber band is NOT a good vibration damper. Rubber band can cause excitation instead of damping.

how else would you mount it without making a case for it?
since the gopro has no thread on bottom for mounting, the only way to mount a gopro on a plain surface like the bar of a gimbal is to use rubber band, tape or velcro.
