What plane did you get? define !QUOT!LIGHT!QUOT! and long range. Do you have any skills? can you solder, build components? Just from what you asked I would say your best bet is to get a e-bay HK !QUOT!SPY CAM!QUOT!. for 70 you could get 800mw+ system and have enough $ left over to make a GPP antenna. Now your not going to get the best video quality but for the price you really can't beat it.

That would be about your best bet for under $70. I have had pretty good results with mine:

This was mounted on an EPP combat slope glider. The camera was stuck inside a "pod" of epp both to protect it and shield the lens from sun glare. The rest of the system was just taped to the top of the glider.
