    Calling our backers with a 3D printer! Get this 3D print file that will give you your very own miniature desktop model of Sprite. It will be about 4 inches (10cm) tall and feature rotating rotors. Just to be clear...this Reward is for a digital print file, not for a physical model! : ) Feel free to print as many as you want and send them to your friends!

    Make Sprite do what you want it to do...whatever that is. The Payload Developer Kit includes all of the digital files you'll need to design and print a custom bulkhead for Sprite. It will attach to the bottom of the Main Module, interface with other modules like the optional Light Ring and LaunchPod landing gear, and provide a watertight seal to keep things dry inside. There's also an accommodation for power and data connections. Any development done with the PDK needs to be done under a non-commercial, open source license. We'll ask you to post your designs to Ascent's website for distribution to other members of the Sprite community to use.
