Over the years LEGO have released a lot of really cool robotics kits, ranging from simple programmable motors to more complex creations. One thing they haven’t done, however, is produce LEGO drones. Surprising, considering how popular and prolific drones have become over the last few years.

Thankfully, Flybrix have stepped in to fill the gap. These kits ship with instructions and all the LEGO bricks you need to knock out a working drone which can be remote-controlled via their iOS Android app. Not only that, but you can customize them with the LEGO bricks you already have. If you fancy slapping additional rotors to give it more lift, you can absolutely do that as well.

Flybrix kits can be purchased from their website – the basic kit costs $149, while the deluxe kit (which comes with its own dedicated remote control) is $189. See Flibrix in action below. [click to continue…]
