That radio would work for an aileron plane carrying some kind of AP system. You could use the channel 5 switch to activate the camera with a servo or one of the electronic switches that you can find information about on this forum.
This radio will work with aileron planes with a single aileron servo or dual servos (one for each wing) using a "Y" connector. It also has a dual rate feature which is very handy for both beginners and experts.
Unless you want to get into a computer radio, I think this one would work fine in my opinion.

Yes, it looks fine and the receiver is "dual conversion" so the range should be good.
What type of plane did you plan on using seismic?

If you take some AP pictures from Turkey, post them here, I'd love to see the country!
