Mission Planner Camera not listed

Hey guys...I know this is going to sound like a crazy newb question but I've never used RTM USB Triggering and I have a Cannon Powershot A810 HD setup for NIR/NDVI.   I don't see the camera listed in the Mission Planner settings?  Is there another camera that would be similar to use? I'm going to be using the Y6 platform with Pixhawk.Any help would be great!See More

"After reading this I was curious if there was anyway of using the EagleTree OSD Pro in line with the Pixhawk instead of using the MinimOSD? Just curious? "

Youth Program - APM 1 Kit(s) : Need Assistance

Hey Guys,I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.  I founded a program that brings RC Aviation to at-risk youth.  We're currently in various Boys & Girls Clubs.  This year we're experimenting with a couple scratch build programs with the older youth who are a bit more interested in the hobby. Here's my problem,  the person I originally had who was going to help me with this program has to leave suddenly and now I'm the one who will be heading this portion of the program…See More
