Polaron payload rebuild

Today I finished rebuilding the destroyed payload section from the last Polaron crash. The computer PCB was re-soldered back together, and several new ejection mechnism components had to be rebuilt, but overall it was a fairly quick job.

The payload bay is ready to be mated to the rest of the rocket. I will replace the green bottle in the stack as we suspect that the green bottles do not handle pressure well. We have had a number destort during pressurisation.
