Over the years, drones have become popular because of their practical uses especially in the field of education to learn coding and programming. As more drones are being introduced in the market, it is hard to know what’s best for individuals, students, teachers, drone enthusiasts, etc. In this blog, I will introduce you to a newly designed drone that is perfect for both home and school.
Robolink has made its huge break with their first self-driving car kit which means that they are an experienced company when it comes to coding and programming. They have successfully funded 4 Kickstarter campaigns since 2015 and raised up to 500% above their goals.
With their CoDrone series, Pro, Lite and Mini, comes a one-of-a-kind programmable drone designed for the classroom!

It has a stable connection with its 2.4 GHz RF communication with 50-meter range. The company uses RF for better stability in the classroom. It also comes with a remote controller so it’s ready to fly right out of the box!
