Introducing Air:bit 2, a drone kit for the BBC micro:bit which you build, code and then fly.

Air:bit is a STEAM learning kit which will engage students with a practical and creative way of learning.

Air:bit combines the micro:bits ease of use with the excitement and engagement of flying a drone. Air:bit is the world's first ever developed micro:bit drone, combining the relevant skills for mastering the future of coding, engineering and technology.

With Air:bit, you take the STEM a step further.... First, build and code your own drone, next, control it with code, an iPad or Android app, or build your own controller using another micro:bit. Once you've learned about engines, aerodynamics, batteries and more, you can design and fabricate your own frames using a 3d printer, laser cutter or any other skill and technology you want to bring to the class - fit in classes as science, arts and crafts, coding and programming, engineering, mathematics and more!

Key Features of the MakeKit Air:bit

  • Make:code or java-programming
  • Fly using a programmable remote (using a 2nd micro:bot) and app (IOS and Android)
  • Advanced measurements in real-time
  • Upgradeable with Camera and multiple sensors

With the Air:bit, it's possible to add a camera and sensors - which means you can extend the ways you can use the Air:bit to take pictures and even do FPV and advanced autonomous flights.
