Open up your new kit to find innovative Circuit Scribe pens that enable you to design and draw your own circuits onto the drone arms. Choose to power up the arms with silver conductive ink or tap the included PCB arms. Finally, you’ll hook up the hub and motors to round out your project. You’ll learn about how drone mechanics work all along the way.

Once you’re ready to take flight, you can use the free CS Pilot app, available for Android and iOS devices, to control your creation. The app makes flying easy to maneuver, so you can handle everything from takeoff to landing smoothly. CS Pilot also enables the drone’s hover functionality for still shots and can be used like a full joystick.

Now that you’re airborne, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the environment around you, thanks to the onboard camera. Cruise the skies with a three-minute flight time and 150-foot WiFi connection. Capture views of your neighborhood, next vacation spot, birthday parties and beyond from above.

Level up your drone skills by building your own. Get the DIY Drone Builder Kit for $24, or an additional 20 percent off, with code CMSAVE20.
