Drones or quadcopters or whatever you would like to call them, have quickly gone from tools only Hollywood filmmakers use to something every 5th grader is crashing into your backyard. Once delegated to the film set, you can buy one of these things for under $20 and fly it around your house with a smartphone now. Companies like DJI have done a fantastic job at maintaining that high-end, professional focus it cut its teeth on while now offering up some very capable and pretty affordable machines for the rest of us.

While you will still have to fork out some decent cash for even the most affordable flyer from a well-known company, we recently spotted a new LEGO-style drone courtesy of Force Flyers at a much more affordable price. With a universal block building design, some light STEM learning features and the build it yourself LEGO like approach, it certainly caught our eye. expand full story
