Playing around with some neopixels and wire wrap and straws. I think this rig can be the lightest yet!

The Night Flying group on Facebook is definitely worth checking out for inspiration:
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, post links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.

Cheap gimbal system that should fit the Phantom.
This is the new version of the 3-axis gimbal for the GoPro camera. It is available now, but still in beta testing. More documentation will follow soon. To complete it, you will need 3 servos "Turnigy 180D", available at Hobbyking, and three ball bearings with 10mm outer diameter, 6mm inner diameter (also from Hobbyking or from various RC shops, AliExpress.com, eBay, etc.) As the parts fit quite precisely, you may have to clean excess powder by sc...

This seems really reasonably priced for an autonomous quadcopter. It uses quaternion positioning instead of DCM orientation kinematics which has a number of advantages, primarily accuracy.
