I've done some searching around on this wiki and forum, and it looks like CHDK does support remote capturing over USB, so that is good. My question is then can the pictures that are captured remotely then be grabbed off the camera to the on-board flight computer via the USB port? I saw some stuff about ptpcam and looked up the libptp library. Does CHDK support that functionality?
Also, can the settings for ISO, white balance, aperture and all that be set over the USB port?
CHDK has it's own custom PTP protocol extension. If your flight computer is running some flavor of linux (or windows, but I'm guessing not), compatible clients are available. Non x86 hosts might require some hacking.See http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/PTP_Extension
I assume I'll have to use one of those client programs on the wiki page to talk to the camera, correct? What would you recommend for an Ubuntu system?
Also, I have no prior experience with CHDK or scripting for it. Is there maybe a quickstart guide or something that I can refer to? Or could you point me towards an example of how to go about remotely capturing an image and then just getting it to the computer?
You can get it here http://tools.assembla.com/chdk/browser/trunk/core/ptp.h
