The problem I had with my 2K was it failed on very bumpy terrain or big jumps. I lost some nasty footage of my buds 650r bitein it hard in the mountains. That is the one time I wish it worked correctly. Files said they were corrupted. It could be possible the "cards" were sub standard. Are you using a Faster card? Also had the same problem with the proper angle. My solution was to use my portable DVD player to get the angle correct, then record when satisfied. Saved me a lot of trial and error runs. I also noticed on my rocket that at 100+ the sound was overwhelming. In other forums they suggest to place a piece of foam over the mic. I am in process of running it in cold weather on my new turbo sled. I fashioned a insulation wrap around the cam to protect it from fogging!!

I use a Panasonic SV-AV100. It records at above DVD quality and has no moving parts to make the video jidder when you are going through the whoops, jumping or crashing. I made a ballistic nylon pouch that holds it on my helmet. The video you are watching is way less quality then what it was videoed in. Like I said, it records at something like 800 lines most helmet cam record around 360 lines.
