I have a question regarding the Ethernet port on the RPi. I intend to eventually build a quadcopter and possibly use an RPi as the main controller. My intentions are to mount a WiFi router in bridge mode
with a long range antennae connected to the Ethernet port of the Pi. The RPi will be connected to an Arduino board controlling the motors. The RPi will send commands to the Arduino via USB. A single computer (my laptop) will be connected to the WiFi network and send commands to the Pi.
Will the Pi's lack of Gigabit Ethernet capabilities noticeably reduce the responsiveness of the the quadcopter, assuming that the RPi will be...
- - Sending sensor data from the Arduino to my laptop
- Receiving commands from my laptop
- Potentially streaming low resolution video to my laptop
