Entry #2: Broken Raspberry Pi camera connector

A project log for Raspberry Pi Zero rocket camera

A budget action camera made with a Raspberry Pi and a Rockit flight computer to shoot 1080p video from a water rocket.

So I broke the Raspberry Pi camera connector. I had already replaced it once and now some of the traces have been ripped. I will buy a new Raspberry Pi zero, connect the camera cable and encase the connector in epoxy. I will also enclose the Raspberry Pi in an ABS enclosure to protect the circuit.

In other fronts, I have fixed the water rocket launcher so that I can adjust the separation between the launch rods. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to test it on Friday and upload a short YouTube video.
