Finally a powerful camera module!

I've been looking at the CMUCam3 for a while, but I've never been very happy with the limited processing power of prior modules. Now the Surveyor comes out with almost exactly what I was looking for. Fast, enough space, can do video compression, or more importantly video analysis to run many image codes onboard. It might take more power than the CMUCam, but not much, nor much larger. And it costs less.

Was reading notes on Sparkfun's web site, ran across notes and work on the Ardupilot. Looks like a complete, but basic UAV is around $500 if you have nothing to start with.
