If you want to get started in the world of drones but do not dare to take the step because today it is necessary to have a series of quite high technical knowledge, today I want to present you a project that you will surely like since it has been precisely designed so that anyone can start in this world. As a detail, tell you that the architects of it with the boys of Flybrix.
As advertised on their own website, you have a link to the project right at the end of this post, Flybrix is aimed at a very wide audience whose age ranges from 14 years onwards. Among the perhaps most interesting details of it, in addition to the fact that it starts from a level where it is assumed that the user does not have any kind of knowledge in this matter, it should be noted that it allows you to build your own drone with LEGO pieces.
Flybrix will allow you to build your own drone with LEGO pieces.
In the kit you will find all the necessary elements to build your drone with four, six or eight propellers, depending on the version chosen, an ARM Cortex -M4 96 Mhz processor compatible with Arduino, barometer, magnetometer, LED indicators of different colors, ADC converter, SD card slot, bluetooth system and, of course , the LEGO pieces needed to create the fuselage. As a detail, tell you that it is possible to add modules WiFi y GPS.
Flybrix is open source, which makes its configuration very flexible, offering many options for learning and experimentation. The manufacturer provides the airframe construction instructions, a coding guide, information for updating the firmware and details of the operation of the flight configuration software for advanced users.
