Special Thanks

   Every year, the costs involved in keeping my website running, and the cost of the editing software increases. Let's face it, that drone wasn't cheap either and nobody is doing the teaching tutorials from a drone but me, lol.  

  I don't believe in patreon sites where you charge for videos that you normally post for free.  So I have added a PayPal option for those who would like to donate to help me with these costs.  I was nearly brought to tears by the generosity of the model railroad community.  

  So here is where I'd like to send a special shout out and thanks to the following for helping me keep this site and my youtube site growing.
