BalloonSat Kits

I think I'd like to start a line of BalloonSat kits. This would be for the airframe and not just the flight computer. A kit would consist of seven sheets of Cellfoam 88, dowels, 1/4-20 nylon bolt, washers, black marker, tubes, plastic sheet, space blanket, and some tape. There would be enough material to make an airframe large enough to hold a video camera, flight computer, and and experiments.

This means I need to get the book together (see my Citizen Scientist articles) for directions and recommendations. The book I plan to publish through Create Space. However, I'll need an ediotor to read over the book first.

Now if there was a way to make a camera kit.
