I am using the T-Rex 600CF for aerial photography. I managed to knock up some skids from aluminium at school which house the camera box. The camera box is fitted with a micro servo which I control on an auxiliary channel. The micro servo depresses the camera button to take pictures/video. The camera box can be tilted to almost any angle needed.
