[Paparazzi-devel] platform for agricultural multispectral imaging?

I'd like to find out what sort of configurations (airframes, camers, etc)
other paparazzi users have used for multispectral imaging. I've got a farm
and for what it would cost me to get a single satellite image, I could put
together quite a nice RC/uav setup with a camera.

I've played with an ARdrone1 a little bit, but the ultrasonic altitude 
sensor gets kinda confused by 5 foot tall corn, and the built-in camera 
resolution is pretty low.

I might be interested in hacking an ARdrone2.0, and pointing the HD camera
toward the ground, but only if I can get Paparrazi running on it instead of
the stock firmware.

Any other thoughts, or comments from someone who's done this?
