The camera I used in my airplane and balloon was one of those disposable cameras that you can get at CVS stores.
They shoot 20 minutes of color video with sound. The quality of the video is actually amazing for a cheap little camera.
The camera cost $25.00. After you use up the 20 minutes, you take the camera back to CVS and they download it to a CD for $12.00 You don`t get the camera back.
I will send you a copy of the video from take off to the "crash"landing ? Is is pretty neat.
