video over xbee Answered

HELP I am constructing a airplane drone with rc capibilitys. I am wondering if there is a way to send video long range with high power xbees. if possible could someone post an instructable on it? Im shure it would help many people. also cost is a factor over the price of the xbees there shouldent be much more cost.

using xbees to transmit video isn't practical, they dint have a fast enoufgh data rate unless your going to have a .1 megapixel camera. it wont work. but still photos once a second might. sparkfuns seral camera (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9334) might do the job with a 6 mile xbee (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9097)
