Thank you USWR!

We have cameras temporarily installed to cut viewports and the servo is now in place. The servo arm is acting as an internal door latch directly instead of using bands across the outside of the door.

The internal door latch system can be a great modification. It is always a tradeoff between how hard a system is to build versus the ease of construction. If you make a system with a lot of precise moving parts, people are unhappy if it crashes and has to be rebuilt. The rubber band systems are a lot less work to repair in a crash, so we steer people to those ideas. A completely internal system is a great project for people who want to take it to the next level.

So this one has not launched yet unfortunately due to other priorities, but I think we will be able to this year.
