Those who are avid DIYers will find the Firefly toy drone to be a great endeavor should they have an interest in 3D printing and drones construction. The instructions as well as the printer files were made available by the creator in order to share the DIY with other enthusiasts who are looking to create their very own design.

The Firefly consists of a body that's made using various 3D-printed parts as well as a transmitter, motors, power board and camera. When combined, they create a toy drone that's impressively sleek and ready to take to the sky on a hobby basis or for racing against friends or competitors. The Firefly drone identifies a consumer preference to create their own components rather than buy them outright to increase the level of hands-on capabilities and sense of accomplishment.
