You key problem will be the distance wireless signal can go. I am going to assume you are not talking about a big open field. You will need to use direction antenna with clear line of site, any trees or vegetation will greatly reduce the distance the signal will travel. I suspect you will get into the dilemma of needing the camera as low as possible to get good picture or as high as possible to get good wireless signal.
