Be Bold and Crash!
The biggest feature of Airblock is that the 6 propeller modules are magnetically attached to the main hub in the center. All modules are enclosed in the EPP foam. As a result, Airblock can be quickly reassembled without damage after crash. This encourages students to fly it and also protects school’s investment.
Easy to Control and Program
The Makeblock app provides a default control panel with virtual joysticks to control Airblock (left, right, forward, backward, up, down). The app also allows users to create a customized control panel where virtual buttons, switches, and joysticks can be added and programmed.
