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 and recharge with the included battery charger. (We strongly recommend adding a spare battery as the charge only lasts for about 6 to 10 minutes of flight time).
