GoPro and Wind Noise Reduction

This video was taken using the GoPro Hero camera. Video I’m more than satisfied with but the wind noise above walking speed is horrible. It really makes the damn thing useless as hearing the engine is the best part of it all.
I’ll post different ideas for reducing the problem with sample videos to give you an idea of the results.
1. Waterproof case with full back plate. Straight out of the box.

2.¬†Waterproof case with full back plate. Used 2 small rectangles of self adhesive Velcro (female side) and covered both mics. Requires much more volume on playback but at least you don’t get noise. I think the backing is just too thick. I’ve got some other ideas that I think may work well.

3. Waterproof case with full back plate. Used 2 small rectangles of Velcro (female side) and covered both mics slipping it in between the camera and the housing. Used three 3/8 vacuum plugs to cover the switch buttons. Results? You decide but I’m not happy yet.
