I reused an old rc boat that doesn't work because of the motor. I took a motor from an old rc car, and all the wires. I took 2 9v batteries that my mom was throwing away. And I took a led from the rc car controller. I used a drinking straw. And I used 2 red LEDs that do not work. 6AA batteries that don't work and finally I got a solar panel that recharges 9v and AA batteries.
Step 1: Materials
OLD rc boat electrical tape hinge
OLD rc car spray paint 2 led strips of 24
OLD 9v batteries masking type cordless drill
Solar panel 2 OLD clocks green led
Wire from rc car OLD drinking straw plexi-glass
LEDs from rc car controller OLD 2 red LEDs that don't work
hot glue drill
hot glue gun drill press
solder scroll saw
soldering iron screw
I made this project mostly from reused material. So that I can help go green for 2009.
Step 2: Motor
Step 3: Drilling
drill 2 small holes in the front of the boat for the red and green LEDs.
drill 2 small holes inside the boat in the back, so that the wires from the led strips can come through.
Step 4: Front leds
Put the green led into the hole and the red one. Green on the right side of the driver and red on the other side.(to make it look more like a real boat). Use hot glue to hole the LEDs in place.
