Create From Your Imagination
With magnetic attachments and modularity, the Airblock drone is only limited by your imagination. We want to encourage the spirit of creation in everyone!
Airblock is made of lightweight, engineered foam that is soft, strong and durable. The fans/blades are surrounded by hexagons, so they’re not directly exposed to objects. Airblock is safe to fly around kids and for kids to safely fly.
The Aerodynamics Behind The Hovercraft
The lift from the four propellers allows Airblock to do a number of stunts, and by selecting two propellers from either side, it can generate specific movements. For instance, the two propellers located on the back of the hovercraft drive the hovercraft forward. The two propellers located in the front drive the hovercraft backward. Getting two propellers to push against each other enables the hovercraft to go left or right. With a little bit of knowledge in physics and aerodynamics, you can even make the hovercraft drift, slide or rotate in any direction!
The vertical height in an open area is limited to 5m (16ft) and the horizontal distance is limited to 15m (49ft).Do I have to purchase a remote control separately for Airblock ?
