Here are some links to check too:

A source for equipment:

http://www.x10.com



How to build a flyable "system" yourself : I know this fellow and he does professional kite and pole aerial photography with his systems - the pictures and video are fantastic. See link below for the "how to".

http://www.bird-shots.com/how_to/rc/rc.htm

Best bet:
Search eBay for "X10 wireless camera"
They (whole systems) are going for as little as $45. Includes camera, transmitter and receiver - plug it into a small TV (or VCR or camcorder to record) like the Bird shots link above.


The draganfly looks cool too!

The Draganfly uses a CMOS camera which is generally not the best choice for mobile applications.

For the same price you can get a CCD based system here:

Range and video quality are orders of magnitude better. It does require a ham license to operate though.

Example videos are here:
