Makeblock Airblock – Modular & Programmable Drone/HovercraftMB-99808
Airblock is a modular and programmable robot system from Makeblock that allows you to build a drone, hovercraft or other vehcles that use the modular propellers of the Airblock. The modules snap together using magnetic connectors.

- Flying distance should not exceed 6 meters, and boating distance should not exceed 4 meters, to avoid accidents caused by lost Bluetooth connectivity.
- Take off the protective cover when in Aircraft mode, as it prevents Airblock from flying.<
- Due to its modular design, Airblock is susceptible to wind, so it is recommended that you fly it in large, open indoor areas, and avoid using it outdoors on windy days.
- In the even that one or more of the Airblock's modules become detached due to collision or other accidents, make sure to first power off the aircraft via the app before re-mounting the modules. If Bluetooth connection has been lost, take out the aircraft's batteries before re-asssembly to prevent accidents.
- When in Hovercraft mode, the included protective cover can be used to protect the craft and propellers from damage.
- Make sure to set the corresponding Land or Water mode for your use case. Using the incorrect mode will cause Airblock to stop functioning or roll over.
- Do not use Airblock on uneven ground or water with waves, as this may cause damage to your Airblock.
- Although the propellers' special design protect them from horizontal entry and collision, fingers and objects can still enter from above and below the propellers.
- Airblock is not waterproof, thus it is not recommended to fly above water. Capsizing while in Water mode may cause a short circuit and could potentially damaget the machine circuitry.
- Modules, which are connected via magnets, may come lose if your Airblock falls from a height or gets hit to absorb the impact, but the EPP protective ring and motor stand is still susceptible to damage.
- Airblock is able to fly for about 6 minutes. When power is low, the main module's LED lights will turn red and the aircraft will automatically land.
- If a propeller falls off while using Airblock, avoid contact with the potentially hot motor to avoid burns when re-assembling.
