Cool. I'll give it a try when I next get a chance.

I think I read somewhere that the ardrone2 has a DSP - have you looked
into using that yet?

Because I've been flying mine from my fields, I've had to use a
platform to launch it from (the grass is too long to do it from the
ground). As it happens, the platform I'm using is a bright yellow
stool. I was wondering if it would be possible to use the camera to
land on it :-) (Just idle speculation really).

On a related note, is it possible to record the video during a
paparazzi flight? And/or view it live?
