Default ASK21 foam glider + MD80 DV camera

I have a glider ... Hobby Kings ASK2100 which is a really nice steady flyer ... and I am thinking to mount a MD80 DV cam in the underside of the nose ..

I have this cheap camera :


(along with a number of typical 808's).

My idea is to hollow out underneath and insert the camera clip mount into the foam ... I want a look-down more than straight ahead job .. so I can basically have a 'hawks-eye' view.

What about landing damage ? even though a cheap camera - seems a shame to damage it unnecessarily. Can a clear plastic piece be hinged over it without affecting clarity ?

Any ideas ? (I'm not changing camera before anyone thinks to suggest a better camera ) ...

I fly from rough fields usually so I need some way to protect it.... but also access to camera to remove / switch on -off etc.
