Looking for two cameras to look up and down on my quad

I've got a 3 position video switch I want to use. I'm trying to find some inexpensive lightweight cameras I can mount to look up and down with my quad. It's too hard to decend 100ft with my quad just looking straight out like currently configured.

Can anyone suggest something that would work well for this application?

Out of the way, Peck!
If your just looking for cheap cameras you can buy from these people...If you need low-light capability look around thier site.

Be warned most of the cased cameras they have are small but the case is fairly heavy aluminum...I bought a .0001-lux (super-low light) color WDR cam for about $100 for my large FPV plane and the lens is part of the case. They have basically the same one as a board camera for $85 now...I'll get that one when i can afford it. Every ounce counts. For a quad if you want one looking up and another looking down i'd get naked board cameras and stretch a small balloon over for waterproofing and short-circuit protection.
