Set of 4 Airblock drones with batteries and chargers included, and also includes components to convert to a hovercraft in the same kit. For grades 7 to 9 class of 4 to 12 students, with 1 to 3 students per team. Great for afterschool clubs or makerspaces. Also includes 4 spare batteries and 4 sets of spare propellers.
The modular airblock is amazing. Not only can this kit be assembled as a Drone, but it can also be assembled as a Hovercraft. The multiple configurations that can be made are magnetically snapped together in seconds to create both aerodynamic and hydrodynamic science experiments. The Drone is made of a rugged type of Styrofoam with the mechanical parts tucked safely inside. The six modular parts snap together with magnets, meaning it can be reconfigured easily in just a few seconds. When it hits a wall, it just bounces. If it falls, it can easily be snapped back together. Students are excited to use it, and teachers are excited by all the science topics they can teach with it.
The battery is easy to take out to charge with a USB phone style charger and the charge lasts only 6 minutes of flight time. We highly recommend the club accessories which provides spare batteries and parts.
