On-board camera in a spinning Girandola

The folks at Epic Fireworks mounted a gyro-stabilized GoPro on a spinning Girandola firework. At about 2 minutes in you'll see various views of the launch, culminating in the on-board footage. Oh my, I so want to build one of these. Without the added booms and sparks of course. You'd need some low thrust, long burning motors. Probably just a pipe dream. I don't think I would invest a large number of relatively expensive motors when one of said motors would launch one of my monocopters. But, it never hurts to dream, right?!?
