The Flexbot Hexacopter is a DIY drone that's more customizable than a frozen yogurt topping bar. It's fully compatible with Arduino, giving you the ability to program the Flexbot with your own coding to do things such as lowering flight noise and adding or removing signals.
You can even create your own additions to the Flexbot's design by 3D-printing new components yourself, such as a model of Nicolas Cage's face to hang on one side, with John Travolta's on the other. Plus, the Flexbot is controlled directly from your smartphone, so you can easily face off with the sky. Normally the Hexacopter would set you back $119.99, but right now you can get one at 25 percent off for only $89.99.
The SainSmart 4WD Robot Car is the perfect choice if you want to use your new Arduino skills to go off-roading with a background character from a Pixar movie. But this nifty gadget is about more than just passing a resemblance to Disney offshoots. It's a fully programmable four-wheel drive car that you build piece by resplendent piece. The Arduino compatibility allows you to easily control it from your computer as you drive around your house and/or neighborhood to terrify all the cats and children. Normally the SainSmart Robot Car sells for $95.99, but today you can get one at 18 percent off for $77.99.
If you're looking for the most adorable way to flex your Arduino muscles, the SunFounder Nano DIY 4-DOF Robot Kit is your curling bar. The kit includes a fully programmable tiny robot called the Sloth that you can teach to walk, kick, dance, or lounge around the house. The Sloth even has a module that allows it to detect and avoid obstacles, which is something conspicuously absent from all of those YouTube videos of DARPA robots crashing into tables and falling over. Normally the SunFounder Nano Robot Kit sells for $59.99, but you can get one right now at 16 percent off for only $49.99.
