Product Description

Hover: Bit 2.0 - build, code and hover off 
Hover: bit is a hovercraft that hovers above the ground. A high-power sliding motor provides propulsion, and a power-driven tail fin controls the direction. One micro: bit is used as a remote control and another on the receiving side, or use a mobile phone as a control unit.

Design and construction of the
hull is made of environmentally friendly aircraft veneer of birch. The packaging is reused as a raft and seal. Download 3D files and create a boat or catamaran.

Code with make: code
More and more people are discovering micro: bit as a simple and accessible platform with ample room for maneuver.  Hover: bit offers programming instructions for remote control and receiver.

You need 2 micro: bits  to control it with another micro: bit (easiest). If you use the iPad app or Android app, you can do it with 1 micro: bit. 

Hover: bit 2.0 comes with the brand new Multi: bit controller card. This gives you even greater opportunities to optimize the code according to your own wishes. This also makes it easier to make other variants of the construction that require a slightly different layout of the engines.
