Raspberry Pi for drone and car

I am looking for something to hang below my drone which needs to be able to run off a battery pack for an hour.
So something like a raspberry pi might work? What do you think?
It would need to have a wifi chip capable of an external antenna and a gps chip.
For the most part it will be in my car running direct off the battery via a 12-5v converter? and I am going to install this antenna on it

I just need to know what model of raspberry pi type device, operating system, scanning software, gps module and wifi module do you recommend?

you can search these forums for various Pi-based projects including instructions and equipment; there's a dizzying variety.
I know folks like Aardvaark have also successfully used "headless" Android devices for drone stumbling as well.
