Need a LIGHTWEIGHT camera for AR Drone conversion

Hi all, go a quick question for you.  I'm planning a PX4 conversion of the AR Drone.  Its purpose is for aerial mapping using still frames, so I need a lightweight camera that the AR Drone will be able to lift.  Continuous shooting is a must, nice resolution is a plus!  Thanks for any answers you all may give.

    I agree but my lab wants to develop one because they are so accessible.

  • The AR.Drone is probably not a good platform for this purpose since the payload is so small. It will lift a GoPro (around 100 grams) but that's probably going to be the upper limit while still maintaining control and reasonable flight times.
