Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look Drones created using Lego bricks.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Drones and Lego
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones and Lego, more specifically making drones out of Lego bricks.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video by YouTuber ajw61185 takes a normal quadcopter and combines it with an unusual frame. This drone has been integrated with a giant lego lookalike helicopter along with spinning rotors to sell the look.
This video by YouTuber alishanmao showcases a more generic looking drone. Created with tiny brushless motors, normal Lego bricks, and an Arduino based control board. You are able to get your own Lego bricks to create any shape drone imaginable.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
