Tell us about yourself!
It would be nice to be able to run it all from one self-contained unit. I am not sure if the Intel Edison is powerful enough to handle all the vision processing. A separate wireless card would still be needed since the CX-10 drone doesn't use standard 802.11 wifi, it uses a proprietary chip compatible with the nRF24l01 card I used. The nRF24L01 card can interface with the Intel Edison easily enough though.
