I've been working on this one for a few weeks. Using a Pelican 1040 that I received during a Hags House Christmas exchange a while back. Game Watcher board from bigbassmann RCDavis trail camera solutions. I decided to go with 3AA holder for external power. Powering the board with 9 volt.

Panasonic FS7 white flash

Nice and clean looking build. Curious why the camera on the bottom? Guess I'm just use to seeing the camera above the board.

I actually rarely put the camera on the bottom, but sometimes the layout just works out that way for various reasons. For example in this build the fS7 fits perfectly down in the pelican 1040. (It actually is up about 3/16"). If any water condenses or pools someday, I should be okay. Also, when I bring wires out the top I tend to like to find a way to put the control board above the cam. Also the Game Watcher is setup perfectly to connect the servo close by when the board is setup vertical as I did it. When you combine all these building desicions, the cam got demoted to the bottom.
