The December issue of The MagPi is out!

Welcome to Issue 19 of The MagPi magazine.

This year has flown by and we are back with our Christmas issue once again! Is Santa bringing you any Raspberry Pi goodies this Christmas? If so we have plenty of great articles to help you put this clever computer straight to good use.

Are you bored of having your presents delivered by reindeer? If you fancy a change, why not have your own Pi-powered quadcopter air drop them in? Andy Baker begins his series on building this flying machine covering in this issue the parts required, their function and discusses some of the coding used for lift off…. no, it’s not powered by Christmas spirit!

If you are too busy attending Christmas parties and are missing your favourite soaps, never fear, we have you covered. Geoff has produced a great article on OpenELEC, bringing you catch up TV on your Raspberry Pi so you never have to miss an episode again! Claire Price continues the festive spirit with a fantastic article on Sonic Pi which will have your Raspberry Pi singing along with a rendition of Good King Wenceslas.

See here for the full issue!
