Turn Your LEGO Bricks Into a Drone With the Flybrix Drone Kit

Flyxbrix/FatBrain
Flyxbrix/FatBrain

Now more than ever, it’s important to have a good hobby. Of course, a lot of people—maybe even you—have been obsessed with learning TikTok dances and baking sourdough bread for the last few months, but those hobbies can wear out their welcome pretty fast. So if you or someone you love is looking for something that’s a little more intellectually stimulating, you need to check out the Flybrix LEGO drone kit from Fat Brain Toys.

What is a Flybrix LEGO Drone Kit?

The Flybrix drone kit lets you build your own drones out of LEGO bricks and fly them around your house using your smartphone as a remote control (via Bluetooth). The kit itself comes with absolutely everything you need to start flying almost immediately, including a bag of 56-plus LEGO bricks, a LEGO figure pilot, eight quick-connect motors, eight propellers, a propeller wrench, a pre-programmed Flybrix flight board PCB, a USB data cord, a LiPo battery, and a USB LiPo battery charger. All you’ll have to do is download the Flybrix Configuration Software, the Bluetooth Flight Control App, and access online instructions and tutorials.

Experiment with your own designs.

The Flybrix LEGO drone kit is specifically designed to promote exploration and experimentation. All the components are tough and can totally withstand a few crash landings, so you can build and rebuild your own drones until you come up with the perfect design. Then you can do it all again. Try different motor arrangements, add your own LEGO bricks, experiment with different shapes—this kit is a wannabe engineer’s dream.

For the more advanced STEM learners out there, Flybrix lets you experiment with coding and block-based coding. It uses an arduino-based hackable circuit board, and the Flybrix app has advanced features that let you try your hand at software design.

Who is the Flybrix LEGO Drone Kit for?

Flybrix is a really fun way to introduce a number of core STEM concepts, which makes it ideal for kids—and technically, that’s who it was designed for. But because engineering and coding can get a little complicated, the recommended age for independent experimentation is 13 and up. However, kids younger than 13 can certainly work on Flybrix drones with the help of their parents. In fact, it actually makes a fantastic family hobby.

Ready to start building your own LEGO drones? Click here to order your Flybrix kit today for $198.

This $30 Guide Will Teach You How to Train Any Pup

The number of people adopting new dogs during quarantine has skyrocketed—and if you just gained a furry friend to keep you company, you can train your dog from home with the eight-course Guide to Puppy and Dog Training program for just $30.

The A-Z Guide to Puppy and Dog Training, the first course in the program, begins helping you before you even get your dog, teaching you to understand how to support adoption rather than puppy farms, and how to select the right puppy for you. Then, set a solid foundation for good behavior by learning to train and socialize your dog from a young age. You'll also be equipped to help your new pup overcome nervous crying, howling, and separation anxiety.

If you already have a dog, don’t worry—there are lessons on teaching them to start and stop barking on command and how to walk confidently and calmly by your side on a leash so you never get tangled around a pole again.

Bark and leash training can make your dog the perfect roommate, but a roommate who doesn’t know a guest from an enemy can be trouble. Learn how to tame aggressiveness with a course designed to help you recognize signals before aggression happens. The training bundle also includes a course that teaches you how to make a career out of dog training and another that focuses on natural remedies for dog health and diet.

The Complete Guide to Puppy and Dog Training is discounted at $30 for a limited time.
