A new Lego kit contains special pieces which help you build different objects from what you are used to. If you would usually build houses and cars, now the game developers offer you a cheap alternative to an interesting drone. The company which offers the game to customers is suggestively called Flybrix.
Flybrix released its new Lego kit on Thursday, September 22. The product can be bought online, and customers can choose one of the two packages proposed. You can either have your drone guided with the help of an application via Bluetooth, or through a controller, also provided by Flybrix. The first package costs $189, while the second is a bit more expensive, and you can have it for $249.
You must have already noticed that all in all, the new Lego kit is much more affordable than other similar products. This is also because the kit contains pieces which have been already used, so the drone will actually be made up of reused Lego bricks.
The components of the new Lego kit are fifty-six Lego pieces. There are several motors, propellers, wires, a little pilot, and everything you need for the board. There is also a battery which must be recharged whenever needed, to make sure that the product functions correctly. The manufacturer announced that the drone is compatible with other Lego pieces that you might have around, so you can put additional pieces to your work if you like.
The wires, the eight motors, and the circuits stand as ten percent of the package. These are the only elements which are not made out of plastic Lego pieces. The rest of the packages consists of the familiar, colored bricks.
After putting all the necessary pieces together, you can fly the Lego drone. According to officially released information, you shouldn’t worry about the risk of crashing. Even if it happens, the Lego device can be quickly rebuilt. Producers also insist that the drone should be exclusively used indoors, and not be tried outside.
Flybrix announced that the new Lego kit is a limited edition, so interested buyers are advised to purchase their package in due time. The product addresses children over 14 and adults as well. Building the Lego drone requires physics, math, and geometry skills.
If you are fond of solving intricate puzzles, the Lego drone offered by Flybrix can be your new challenge. You can built it yourself, or give your kids a nice present, or built it together. Which one will you choose?
