Final Budget and Expenses

The initial budget proposal came to roughly $990 and the final amount spent came to roughly $1450. The additional expenses arose due to the need for airframe repairs (~$100), switching to the use of a GoPro for the imaging system (~$300), and the purchase of WinTV for video recording (~$70).
