For the record, the Vulture 1 has some extra weight inside the nose to create the correct balance. It weighs in at 330 grammes all-up, which is pretty good going. Sadly, we had to ditch the onboard miniature camera, since it showed a severe adverse reaction to even the slightest chill.

We hope, though, to get some aerial footage of the aircraft's release, courtesy of our main payload box video camera. We shall see.

Finally, just to keep you up to speed on the Vulture 1 CAD representation, here's how it currently looks:
