The #pi-camera Raspberry Pi cameras people are starting to use can do live Wifi streaming video if you can get a signal, but I found that the signal didn't reach once it was really up in the air.
But I wonder if a laptop would do better than a phone at connecting (bigger antenna?) Or if some parabolic chicken wire antenna could be built as a "downlink"... interesting, just like with a real satellite!
There are external antennae for other models of the Rasp Pi, so possible sizing up would help (though we'd loose the compact size, which is really nice). That said, I am very interested in the parabolic extender. Let's try that!
Whoa, what if the strainer were the protective enclosure for the camera itself??? I'll copy that idea back to the post I just made about pi rigs. #19578
