Using a football to hold a GoPro for aerial footage

I just saw this item and would like to make my own to be able to throw to get footage of my dog running. Has anyone done anything like this or have any suggestions? Just seems a bit much to spend $60-80 when I could possibly do it myself with hollowing out some Nerf ball.

Thanks.

That would be a cool idea only if you get to control everything from throwing to landing. How's your research so far?

Seems like this would create a lot of repeated impact to the camera. Could the camera get CTE? Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

Neat idea.

Would be cooler if it would level off and glide to the ground. I could see that working a bit smoother.
