Dumb question - it needs a phone on the aircraft, correct? With a camera, if video is to be used?

if so, just how small a phone / tablet is there?

What's that tiny android phone? Is it a suitable substitute for a GoPro?

@Euan - we like using this tiny Android phone called Posh s240 for testing. It's super small, light and works on 4G.

We are also working on our own hardware that will weigh 2oz with a battery and be 2" x 1" in size. 

@Ouroboros - the phone in the video is called Z18, but it's pretty limited actually. Posh s240 is MUCH better, however none of them can come even close to GoPro. They are there mostly for FPV video.

We are working on implementing GoPro - to GlobalARC connection through the android device onboard, so that you could get the actual view from the GoPro.
