My personal goal is to be able to use a quad-copter from my vehicle, i.e. to survey a crowded parking lot and locate an available parking space. So I want a convenient and secure way to transport, launch, control, retrieve and recharge a video-equipped copter from my vehicle.
Most Sun/Moon roof accessory packages include an upper glass panel and a lower opaque panel. Use the lower panel to capture a BASE support package, and the upper glass to shield it from the environment. To be designed: a cordless charging surface, and a short-range auto-landing mechanism (using retro-reflector beacons, etc).
Wireless transceiver packages exist, as do video display elements (could be tied into a smart phone app, but low priority). Most of the rest of this project is simply packaging with nominally standardized (TBD) dimensions. The end result should probably fit into a small suitcase and (with an auxiliary battery) could be used sans vehicle.
