"All, After some troubleshooting with SkyDrone, my Pixhawk 2.1 is connected to my GCS through the 4G connection. It eats up around 1MB of data every 5 minutes or so, which is quite respectable. I'll see how it does when I refit my boat in a few…"

"Tuning the video feed quality from RC or GCS would be excellent! HD feed is not needed when navigating."

"1.2 GB for 20 minutes? Ouch -- that could get expensive very quickly. Def. need the ability to dynamically control bitrate from GCS."

"Cool, that would be great! Can we also get an option to turn the video stream on and off to save data? "

"@Kevin Good to hear that you have the system running. The video bitrate adjusts to network conditions but might go a bit high for certain applications under ideal network conditions. We are aware of that and will have a GCS software update where you…"

"Connected and video is up and running on my data plan. No issues there other than opening up the specified port in my firewall. Video has great speed, it just eats up around 1MB of data every second which is a bit high for me. I'll connect it…"

"@Johm @Auturgy We indeed use a Rpi3 in the product and we are not trying to hide it. It just is not relevant to mention, as some customers might conclude the system is meant for tinkering - which it is not. Rather than using Raspbian or similar OS,…"

"I ended up ordering one so hopefully I can report how it is in a few days. Yes, I know full well what the hardware is and that it's COTS. The problem that I've had is that I've been looking and asking for a 4G connection for months…"

"The spec sheet I linked above mentions configuration over wifi, so combined with the physical layout I'd say this is almost certainly a Pi3. Good news for Mark, as lighter cases are readily available. I'm curious as to why they've…"

"You may be correct. At 299 just to have a mavlink friendly no-fiddle solution it is probably not a bad deal. I would like to be able to use multiple cameras and switch them though. Lighter enclosures would also be needed."

"@Auturgy, reading between the lines I figure they use some variations of an LVDS cable with raw data from the camera, and do all the video encoding on the 'motherboard'. The problem with having native encoding in the camera (Logitech 920…"

"@Marc I'd be confident that any 1080p30 h.264 native (ie 2mp USB camera with onboard h.264) UVC camera would have similar performance, and I doubt that the software would even know it was a different camera.  A higher resolution camera,…"
