@Todd

I built a similar type GCS into a Pelican case so that it would be waterproof, float, and the internal components were shock mounted to withstand being shipped by UPS or taken on a commercial jet:GCS Parts List  CDC GCS The cost was not trivial, but neither is its performance:-)

Looks good, plenty of room left for some tools and parts.

What type of battery is in there? How will it charge?

And I don't mean to go all Slashdot, but does it run linux?

That's the beauty it can run whatever you like completely customizable the prototype has win7 but we can do Linux the actual release should be very soon it can hold 4 5ah dry cell battery's that should run it for 5 or 6 hrs it can be charged via 12 either ac adaptor car plug or gator clips that plug into the banana clips havent nailed down the final price yet but we are looking at around 1000$

I think it is a great idea and at around a great price point. I'm trying the same idea with the internals of a laptop installed and it is becoming a pain with finding time as on my free time a fly
