Gallery: 10 unique drones that are sure to turn heads

​Flybrix

Anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s remembers a time before branded Lego kits. If you wanted Star Wars ships you had to design them yourself. There weren't any Indiana Jones or Batman kits, and forget about Lord Of The Rings sets.

Flybrix is a drone kit that takes Lego creations one step further: you can attach drone motors to your designs and fly them! The basic Flybrix kit comes with eight motors and all the specialized Lego-compatible bricks you need to get started. Drones can be flown with a smartphone app or a remote.

These buildable drones aren't out yet, but according to the website they should ship by Christmas. Time to relive childhood!
