    Add [Ivideo ]telemetry[/I] to your search terms. At the SCaLE12x conference there was an interesting talk on using Arduinos and XBee radios for high-altitude ballons. They had telemetry--sending back data in real time during the flight. https://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale...owered-balloon

    Video requires a lot of bandwitdth to send real-time. In theory you could simply run a RaspberryPi with Raspian (a form of Debian) with a USB video camera and stream through VLC using a wireless dongle and have a linux PC on the same wireless network to pick the the VLC stream. That limits your range to WirelessG or 100m or so.
