Toys manufacturer Twenty-one has an interesting take on the drone DIY concept. Their new aircraft is indeed made of LEGO-esque blocks that you can put together to build your own drone.
By looking at the photos it appears as you don’t have many possible combinations available, but it should be fun to put together nonetheless. The website does not specify the on-board hardware though, all we know is that it packs everything you need to make it fly. That means: flight control board, battery, data cable, remote controller, propellers, motor legs and fixed bars.
The included battery has a capacity of 300mAh at 3.7V, which should be good for about 4 to 5 minutes of flight time.
