It certainly can  :)

People have used model aeroplanes and helicopters, kites, balloons and other aerial platforms.

Remember to post your photos !

Quite a few of the Kite Aerial Photographs here http://www.flickr.com/groups/kiteaerialphotography/
and Pole Aerial Photographs here http://www.flickr.com/groups/pole_aerial_photography/
were taken using Canon cameras running CHDK or SDM.

If you look here:
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3509.0.html
you will see that another user (bzfrank) gives a script that he used with an Isux80 (on a RC helicopter)
As the Ixus80 is just another name for the SD1100, this means you can use that code straight off!

(btw, that code is partly derived from code that I developed for a high altitude balloon, see here http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=2877.0 )

I, too, am an enthusiastic borrower of fbonomis code running in an SD1100IS/IXUS80.   

Results are slowly improving but there is still lots of room for further improvements in my abilities.  A few of the better shots have been put up here:

It's great fun and of course... the sky's the limit!

@old farseeing art: beautiful photos

The one with sharks is quite exceptional!
The idea of having (in very small part) contributed in its making makes me proud :-)

To the OP: It seems you haven't still decided what camera to use....

The SD1100 (aka Ixus 80) is a camera that is very frequently used in these airborne applications, due to its small size and weight.

It does have some disadvantages, though, such as being a bit too "authomatic", that is why some coding was needed in order to have good results in shaky flying toys.

See discussion following old farseeing art's post here:
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2877.msg27216.html#msg27216

And here:
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3320.0.html

Also, see also these two pages where I describe the solution:
http://www.francescobonomi.it/ballon-photography-CHDK
http://www.francescobonomi.it/ballon-photography-Fast-TV-mode

All this said, it seems that with bzfranks's script (linked here http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3509.msg33125.html#msg33125 ) you have a "ready to run" solution for the SD1100 so probably  the SD1100 is the indeed right camera for your use.
