The new Flybrix LEGO Drone kit lets you build and fly your own drone using bluetooth from your smartphone!
LEGO has just released a new box set that allows you to build your own drone completely from LEGO bricks. It is designed to allow you to be creative, and interpret the design in multiple ways so you can have your own personalized drone.
All the parts are resistant to crashes and experimentation, giving you greater creative freedom. The kit includes 56+ LEGO bricks, a LEGO figure pilot, 8 quick-connect motors, 8 propellers, a propeller wrench, a pre-programmed Flybrix flight board PCB, a USB data cord, a LiPo battery, and a USB LiPo battery charger.
Having created your drone, with the liberty to even add as many other LEGO bricks as you would like, simply download the Flybrix Configuration Software and download the Bluetooth Flight Control App, and you’re ready to fly!
The app even grants access to free tutorials and online instructions if you’re interested in learning all the secret hacks available to the Flybrix LEGO Drone.
For a more advanced experience with the drone, it also offers a chance to experiment with coding and block-based coding. The Flybrix app allows you to have your go at software design thanks to its arduino-based hackable circuit board. The whole project was made to inspire total immersion and experimentation for the user into their product. It is a personalizable experience from beginning to end.
The Flybrix LEGO Drone is ideal for a family hobby, involving anyone interested in either building and hand-craftsmanship or coding. It is the ideal way to introduce children to STEM concepts, and encourage experimentation.
