Can Pi In The Sky get smaller?

This week the Raspberry Pi foundation has announced a new version of the Raspberry Pi computer called the Zero which is much smaller than the existing model. There is more information here at


One of the most successful spin off project  of the Raspberry Pi is the Pi In the Sky radio tracker and SSDV platform. But what of this new Pi? Can it be used to drive the PITS board and further cut weight and maybe battery consumption compared to the existing model? Can it also serve as a useful platform to build a sensor suit for HAB flights?
