Everybody needs a good hobby. When your brain is fully immersed in a pleasant activity, self-consciousness melts away along with stress and anxiety. Which is good. Hobbies can also teach you new things and make you a more well-rounded and interesting person. Also good. But not all hobbies are created equal. Building a five-star island on Animal Crossing or learning Tik Tok dances may check off a few of the things you want in a hobby, but they leave a lot to be desired when it comes to intellectual stimulation. If you want a hobby that’s as educational and enriching as it is entertaining, you need to check out the Flybrix LEGO drone kit from Fat Brain Toys.

If you played with LEGOs or any other building blocks as a kid, you probably spent untold hours designing jets, rockets, spaceships, helicopters, and all sorts of other flying vehicles. But of course, none of them actually took flight.

Now, thanks to Flybrix, they can.

Flybrix is a kit that lets you build real working drones out of LEGOs and fly them around your house using your smartphone as a remote control. The kit was designed to be an exciting and engaging way to introduce core STEM concepts to kids 13 and up. However, kids under the age of 13 can get a lot out of Flybrix if they work with an adult. And of course, there’s no reason why a full grown adult shouldn’t buy a Flybrix LEGO drone kit just for themselves. The system is suitable for total beginners and engineering experts alike.

The Flybrix build-your-own LEGO drone kit comes with everything you need to start flying in as little as 20 minutes. It includes a bag of 50+ LEGO bricks, a LEGO figure pilot, 8 quick-connect motors, 8 motor boom arms, 8 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 have to do is download the Flybrix Configuration Software and Bluetooth Flight Control App, and you’ll be in the air before you know it.

But of course, building your first drone according to specifications is only the beginning.

Try Your Hand At Aircraft Engineering

The Flybrix LEGO drone kit is designed for experimentation. The propellers, motors, and circuit board can withstand crash, after crash, after crash. That means you can experiment with your own aircraft designs and propeller configurations until you come up with something totally unique. Then you can do it all over again.

Need help with something? Flybrix kits come with access to online instructions and tutorials that can provide all the guidance you need along the way.

And the mechanics aren’t the only thing you can experiment with. For those who really want to take their drone engineering to the next level, Flybrix uses an arduino-based hackable circuit board, and there are advanced features within the Flybrix app that let you explore all the possibilities of coding and block-coding.

Basically The Perfect Hobby
