Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Kodak Zx1 video camera is a slightly less orthodox set-up. We wanted it to look down on the Vulture 1 cockpit, so we wedged it in the top of the box wall, with a view down to where our pilot will ride out the ascent:

There's a rubber seal between the box wall and the camera to keep the cold out, and since the batteries are mounted in the bottom of the camera, and therefore are inside the box, we lovingly crafted an insulating sock to keep them toasty.

The box lid houses the GPS tracker (test details here) and radio beacon (more here). When the lid's closed, they share a space with the stills camera:

Finally, we stuck some draft excluder strip around the top edge of the box walls to provide a seal for the lid:
