For our Helikite (http://www.allsopp.co.uk/) the stock camera mount wasn't doing the trick for what we needed. We decided to build a picavet to hang underneath. With some direction from Charles Benton's website (http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/kap/equip/picavet.html) we constructed the cradle from some 1/4" basswood, a few small screw eyes, and a bent metal coat hanger to attach the camera to the cross. The whole thing was attached to the balloon with two Prusik knot loops (the pink string on the bottom photo).
