Air:bit V2 The micro:bit drone

The micro:bit drone got even better!

Air:bit is a micro:bit based drone kit. This makes it easier than ever to get full access to see and modify the drone’s code. From simple block programming to advanced javascript algorithms, Air:bit 2 covers it all. Download and print frames or design your own!

Air:bit V2 uses the powerful WonderKit control board and sports a ICM-20602 precision gyroscope and accelerometer, as well as a motor controller, a quick charger and a battery protector circuit. The versatile system allows for modifications such as smart gloves, camera or servo add on or even a lidar collision system. Air:bit V2 is repairable and part of the versatile WonderKit system.

Air:bit V2 needs one micro:bit (V2 recommended) as a main controller, while the remote can be another micro:bit (V1 or V2 both works fine) or an app (iOS or Android).
