Build your own DIY drone that actually flies for under $45

Tech training and productivity apps are great and all, but sometimes, you just need to cut loose and have fun, which is where this latest TNW Deal comes in.

With the Force Flyers DIY Building Block Drone, you not only have your very own flying drone to play with, but you actually create it yourself. Right now, you can save $7 on one of these kits, down to just $42.99.

Sure, anybody can go out a buy themselves a drone. But not everybody has the brain power or intellectual curiosity to build their own, which is where these Force Flyer kits not only stimulate your mind, but they’re a heck of a lot of fun to fly as well.

The process is fairly straightforward as you use a set of LEGO-esque building blocks to fashion pretty much any drone design you like. Of course, that doesn’t mean your design will actually get off the ground, requiring you to explore facets of aerodynamics and weight distribution to engineer a craft capable of going airborne.

But once you’ve worked out your design issues, you’ve got a drone flying with a 6-axis gyro, ready to execute precision flying tactics. You can zip it through tight spaces indoors and out, and impress onlookers with a full complement of aerobatic tricks like 360-degree stunt flips.

Built from crash-resistant plastic incorporating auto-stabilization features, this craft has a flight range of over 200 feet. Available in four fun kit variations (space, police, firefighter, and army), this is the perfect STEM toy for a kid with some ingenuity or an adult who isn’t above a little fun. Right now, slash 14% off with this limited time offer and get the kit of your choice for only $42.99.
