Olympus Stylus 1 Photo Essay: Space Derby

I'm still working on Part 2 of the Olympus Stylus 1 review.  But in the meantime, here is a photo / video essay.  All photos and videos here are from the Stylus 1.

Each year, many boy scout troops hold a space derby where they race propeller-driven "rockets" they build.  The race is a fun activity for the scouts and their families.

Counting how many times he should wind the propeller
some prefer to wind up the fast way








No this is not a high-speed photo. His rocket ran out of power. :)
