Hi Mark
Thanks for pointer.
I now have constant live video feed and remote USB button shutter control.
Both operating under <Alt> CHDK status.
Just a small amount of unavoidable text at the bottom of the transmitted video picture.
The problems others are experiencing with cameras are all to familiar to me.
The  cheapish micro /mini board cameras are hardly ever offered with well defined
specifications and are usually designed for security work and lack IR filters.
Hence the problems being experienced by C.KUO.
And those that do are extremely expensive. 
That is why I am testing the small Canon with the hope of lifting it comfortably.

Hi Stephen,

I have successfully used CHDK on a Canon Ixus 80-IS.

I found that I had to disable all power save options so that the camera would always stay on fully awake and not go to sleep.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Mark

Hi Everyone


Re: Camera:


I have a similar software problem with a Canon IXUS 80IS and CHDK.


Following a very kind donation from John Stowers of a Booz main, IMU and power board I have successfully launched a 40cm MK quadrotor.


I wish to carry the mentioned cradled Canon camera and remotely trigger still shots using the USB remote configuration.while simultaneously transmitting  video over a 5.8 GHz transmitter.


To date I am having great difficulty getting the video to display beyond three minutes without the default script appearing on the video image.


Any help with a working script would be appreciated.


Pascal previously indicated in a PM that one of Antoine's quadrotors was running this setup.


Re :Wind

After crashing my Funjet last summer I came back to test my old the airframe.xml code for a rebuilt version and found the settings file wind.xml has been removed. 


Christophe De Wagter maybe you could kindly set out the proper procedure to run the strong wind function?
