Camera and GPS on rc boat

Hello people! New guy here, started to learn arduino few weeks ago. I took a project for my uni in which i have to make an autopilot rc boat with a camera on it (relatively with good quaity video capture capabilities) to make a timelapse video. So my first question is which arduino can handle gps sensor data and the camera data and my second question is if a single transceiver can do all the work on the boat and if yes which one for long range? ( up to 5km)

You need to define what you mean by "handle". The Arduino can control a camera but it has very limited memory. It cannot process images itself.

Hmm i see. How other people made projects with camera via wifi on rc? Can you please suggest any module that can process and send good quality video data? For the ram a solution might be the microSD card module?

Use a separate computer, like the RPi, for the camera.

Any Arduino would be fine to read the GPS and steer the boat. The example below uses an Arduino-compatible Orangutan SV-168 from Pololu, which has half the memory of an Arduino Uno.

Take a look on iforce2d site on youtube. He has many long range data/video there.

Hi, Welcome to the forum.

Please read the post at the start of any forum , entitled "How to use this Forum". OR http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,148850.0.html.

rctestflight on YouTube is also worth looking at.

He has many autonomous vehicle projects.

Have you googled
