Air:bit troubleshooting

A drone is a complex aerial vehicle, both construction and the code needs to be correct for it to fly, and it can be difficult finding a small problem that disturbs the behaviour of the drone.

In this article, we will aid you so you can give wings to your micro:bit.

Common issues:

  • Radio communication, the remote and drone do not communicate correctly

  • Electrical connection between micro:bit and Air:bit flight controller

  • Electrical motor placement (two different types)
