I want to mount a cam in a model airplane and transmit a frame at whatever resolution requires the least amount of initialisation (probably just the power up default for the web cam) and transmit it a frame at a time to the ground station receiver (to be processed by my own written software), as soon as one frame has been transmitted I will wait for the start of the next one? Can I do this ?
I think that half of the intelligence of a web cam is in the device driver in the computer. I think a cctv type camera is easier to get output from. Essentially the camera chip gives a standard video signal that can go to the transmittter. There are wireless cameras for home surveillance systems about the size of a golf ball.
Ok I will look into a cctv camera. I hope it is not too expensive or limited on signal power. In the mean time do you know what the data format is from the web cam of am I going to have to get my oscilloscope out ?
