I really like your concept here. It would answer some of the issues that came up for me while using the SmartiPi Touch Case as far as access to microSD card and perhaps the HDMI port… I could not tell if you had left access there.
Are you are planning on using a header cable for the GPIO? Could that leave the bus more open to RFI in field use.
Folks playing with DRAWS seem to have have found it better to use the buck regulator on the DRAWS board to power the RPi . All you need is a male to male micro USB power jumper like you can get from Drone vendors to route from DRAWS to the RPi. This would eliminate the need for a separate 5V supply. I supply my rig and the DRAWS from the same power source.
The RPi touch screen is nice but issues that came up for many who tried it:
BTW – all the DRAWS discussions are in the UDRC subgroup – Lots of great info there.
