This looks awesome. I'm also ordering a Raspberry Pi Zero + camera to test out with a spectrometer, but curious how standardized/simple Raspberry Pi cameras have become for basic interval shooting? Is there a way to get one with all standard parts and an on/off switch and battery, all in a nice box?

Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.

I'm still assembling the components inside the box and using a RPI2b (the ones I got home ;). For the power I'm using a lipo batery together with the Adafruit Powerboost 500. This way the pi gets the power via GPIO and a switch is used to turn on and off the camera. On friday I'll post the details ;D

So, yesterday we were unable to put the raspberry pi camera in the air.Our kite is tiny so we'll try a gopro today.

Black Box RC printed by @JuanfraAlvarez. We'll give it a try tomorrow. It has been a very long week and my body is asking me for a little bit of Crowd, Cloud and Sofa ;)
