Show and Tell:

  • Ken Whitfield showed his new quadcopter he got for Christmas. It's the Propel HD Video Drone. He cannot get the camera to work. Steve Huntley thinks the SD card is not formatted correctly. I found this drone on the web and they said you must have a smart phone to run the camera and I assume there is an app for that. You can stream video to your phone or the SD Card. After looking up the instructions the smart phone is only needed for FPV. If the camera light doesn't come on they tell you to reformat the SD card. The camera is run from buttons on the controller.

  • Bill Kirkpatrick showed his SIG Wonder flying wing and his engine test stands. Tower Hobbies still sells the SIG Wonder.
