Being developed over the last two years, the Airbit combines the micro:bits ease of use with the exitement of a drone. Airbit is small, safe and suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage. Flying is surprisingly easy using a one-hand control and the frame is made from bio-friendly, high grade plywood. Airbit is fully repairable and can take a lot of crashes.

Learning topics include:

  • Assembling the parts - motors, battery, propeller and frame
  • Program your own motion control remote with microsoft make:code and seamless javascript integration. Advanced users can also program the drone code.
  • Math: Learn geometry and functions to visualise movement and angles
  • Get acceleration, temperature, or battery voltage in real time and export to excel
  • Controlled via APP (open source) or another micro:bit
  • Design or download additional 3d-printed frame
  • Retail price planned to be around EUR 125 ex VAT each (1-2 micro:bits needed)

Airbit is developed by drone expert Henning Pedersen in close cooperation with 4 regional norwegian science centers, schools and libraries.
