I got my start back in 2007 making a Lego Mindstorms autopilot, so I've always had a soft spot for Lego and Drones. Now there's a Lego quadcopter project on Kickstarter.

I love some Legos. My daughter is on her way to the regional science fair for her Lego NXT fish-feeding robot. It is quite cool to hear a 10 year-old explain standard deviation.

LEGO is just so amazingly versatile.

Don't try this at home. The Legos would need to be glued AND screwed or it WILL fall apart. I incorporated Legos into my first DIY quad opted. I won't use them again. Bad idea.

Chris, thanks so much for posting that, there is no doubt you guys are the best in the world!  

So far there has not been a lot of hits on this kickstarter, but its a learning experience nonetheless.  I really think a lot of people now-a-days want drones RTF rather than building them, so we may have to rethink this and have bind-and-fly "built" pledge for this to work. Also we need to lower the goal a ton where 2 drones will cover the goal,  once past the goal I think it may get more press.

On another note I also called LEGO to see if I can get larger bottom and top plates so we can offer a version with the APM inside and not on top.   So far no luck, could 3D print it.

Whatever the outcome, I once again I can not thank all of you guys enough.

Fell free to offer ideas.
