This kit contains everything necessary for the sealed style LiquidFyre 808 Camera Shroud, except for the camera. It is compatible with the 808 #16 camera with the wide angle "D" lens.
The shroud is designed to provide a minimal, sleek, pseudo-ogive protrusion for mounting a camera through the wall of your rocket at an optimal angle. Molded from 5 layers of 5.7oz 2K twill carbon fiber (approx. 0.045" thick) it is extremely durable. They have survived ballistic recovery, burying them 5 feet into clay, and landing flat on gravel from 3 kft with no damage but scratched paint. (In both cases the 808 cameras were not damaged either). The shroud can be mounted through the wall of an airframe or a coupler & airframe.
The sealed carrier design provides a seal between the airframe and carrier and can be installed even where it will be directly exposed to ejection gasses. Note: this does not provide a seal against water or other contaminants from outside of the rocket that could still damage the camera.
All of our camera carriers are made from solid CNC machined linen phenolic making them lightweight and extremely durable with a consistent precision fit. They are designed to be easily transferable between rockets of the same diameter. The mounting threads are reinforced with stainless steel helical inserts and will not wear out with repeated mounting and dismounting.
LiquidFyre 808 camera shrouds are currently available in 2" (54mm), 3" and 4" sizes. Please see images for space allocation. Careful consideration of component layout should be used with the camera in 3" or smaller av-bays. In the 54mm size we recommend mounting the camera in the nose cone using a switchband to extend the cone.Installation instructions and routing templates will be available in our resources section soon.
