  • hello every one im just beginner in this field and i have problem in communicating the apm 2.6 with MATLAB could you help me plz to solve this issue
  • I used a CMUCam2 (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~cmucam/) on a UAV project 3-4 years ago to do a similar task. It's relatively expensive (200-300$), but it's really fast and efficient to track color objects or movement and doesn't need to do the processing on a ground station.


    Otherwise, if you need long range video and you can carry a good payload, I'd use an IP camera combined with a Ubiquity wifi antenna.
