Drones are cool -- there is no denying that. But so many of the drones geared towards kids seem a little, well, uninspired.
Flybrix is different -- it isn’t your typical drone. Kids have to actually build the drone before they can fly it, and they do that using LEGO bricks, which come in the starter kit. With the starter kit, kids can create a quad-, hex- or octocopter. They then control the drone with the companion app, available for iOS and Android. And if the drone crashes, kids can just build it again, differently each time.
What makes this drone special is that instead of just flying around, kids are learning about aerodynamics and electrical engineering. The kit comes with everything you need to get started. Flybrix is recommended for ages 14+. Just note, the company says the last day to order Flybrix to guarantee a Christmas arrival is December 15th.
