I would assume a shrinkwrap could do the trick (just remove the case and wrap the whole thing, incl. battery, and cut a hole for USB charge port)?
I have mounted the regular SD 808 on the bottom of a Champ, and it flew fine with no modification to the camera. I don't know what your experience with electronics is, but these little things are fragile. My own recommendation would be to leave it in the case; I ruined one last week just by trying to focus it. Although I thought I was being careful, I shorted something and POOF, the camera was dead. I would assume the HD model is just as fragile as the SD model.
