DIY: RC Boat from scavenged parts

Fun & Games Technology

I made something like this when I was about 10 years old. My version wasn’t as complicated, and it sank in a matter of minutes. I really like the use of a nail and coil to make a simple solenoid for switching the moors on and off. Overall it’s a pretty good use of recycled materials.

    I found out a little more about the maker….

    30 Years Old & from Japan

    So I give him a lot of credit for speaking/writing more than 1 language. My Japanese is a lot worse than his English!

    This looks like it was a fun little project. DIY plus reuse…most people would probably throw that stuff in the trash! haha

    Wow, that’s really impressive. I’ve been meaning to try something similar when I get more time on my hands. Great vid, love the music. :)
