The Father Of The Powersquid Launches A Bluetooth-Enabaled Carbon Fiber Drone
Chris Hawker, the creator of the Powersquid, and some of his buddies at Trident Design have created a model new flying drone, the Carbon Flyer.

The physique of the fowl is manufactured from carbon fiber and Toby Rich, creator of the first phone-managed RC plane constructed the Bluetooth controller.

Identical to the Ohio-based Wright Brothers, the Ohio-based Hawker was impressed whereas having fun with with a flying toy.
“I had the distinctive idea to do a carbon fiber free flight plane whereas strolling in a park sooner or later, after which Abraham and I brainstormed about it on a drive, which led to the considered creating it powered.
