Looks Really Cool.

Don't like that it's rigged to a box though-  Perhaps my bias towards
aerodynamics is showing, but i consider the freefall/descent stage to be one
of the most fun parts of this whole process, and it's not that hard to make
a torpedo-shaped aerodynamic cowling that will A- Provide
Consistent orientation (weathervaned on ascent, statically, camera-down on
descent) and B- Minimize buffeting (and hopefully C, within a few iterations
offer 3 degrees of controllable freedom to the onboard computer)
