I am building a custom block, it is a hero slider.

In the parameters I am defining an attribute called slides which has an empty array as it's default value.

In the Edit function :

registerBlockType("fa-gutenberg-blocks/fa-01-hero-slider", {
  edit: Edit,
  save: Save,

It loads fine and I can create add new elements to it like so

const addSlide = () => {
    const emptySlide = {
      title: "",
      description: "",
      media: { url: "", id: null },
      ctaLabel: "",
      ctaURL: "",
      backgroundColor: "#CCC",

    const newCurrentSlide = slides.length;

      slides: [...slides, emptySlide],

    setTimeout(() => {
          currentSlide: newCurrentSlide,

However in the Save function it does not load an empty array the attribute is undefined. To try and solve this I set the slides attribute to an empty array if undefined, as I added objects to the slides array they appeared in the Save function. I then called a array map method on the slides in the returned JSX in the save function which returned some html for each array item. When I loaded the the block on the actual page (not the edit screen) it did not render the mapped JSX html, but the attribute slides does contain the updated array.
