The way people have proven that LEGO® can get airborne is to take
apart a small, inexpensive drone and attach bricks to it. Some people strip
a toy drone down to its components and then solder the motors to the
board while building a 4-armed mini-drone.
With this method, among other limitations, you can’t:
• Reconfigure your airframe and get it to fly with any stability.
You basically are only able to mimic the toy drone configuration
using some bricks.
• Add more motors. You’re limited to 4 since all toy drones are only
quadcopter designs. There are no additional motor ports or
connection points on toy drone flight boards to solder more motors
onto the board.
• Use software to adjust your flight controls for stable flight.
Our philosophy is that if you’re really interested in enjoying the thrill of flight
with a drone designed for flight performance, you should consider a ready-
to-fly toy drone. Flybrix isn’t the right product for what you’re looking to do.
However, if you’re interested in having a blast learning about drones, how
to build drones, experiment with drones, understand the inner workings of
drones, want to get into coding drones, want to be able to get into drone
settings to change how your drone performs plus flying your creations…
Then Flybrix is the kit for you!
