New "maker" display is complete

Today I put together the first complete prototype of the "maker" style display -- one which uses commodity parts. There is a small resistor network for the encoder knob, which I made on a piece of breadboard -- that can be a tiny custom PCB at some point. Otherwise, this is built around a standard Raspberry Pi and a 4.3" HDMI LCD panel that's inexpensive and available everywhere. The result looks like this:

We still have a few software improvements / bugs before we get a test flight, but in the meantime, check out the assembly pictures!
