    I have Three underwater ROV kits I thought I might throw out there for trade. They were modeled on the actual units that capped the deep horizon spill in the gulf.

    These would be awesome parent/child spring Break projects, science fair projects, gifts for niece or nephew, etc. I have had 13 year olds build these in my classroom with NO adult intervention or help. I do recommend they practice soldering practice with paperclips before working on the circuit board in the controller.

    The kits include everything, even a detailed instruction book and trickle charger for the battery. The only things required, and not included, are a soldering iron, screw driver, and drill.

    These retail for $169 ea. I would like to trade for something around $50 worth of ammo per kit. If a person bought more than one kit, I would throw in an already assembled unit for free (great visual aid while constructing).

    Ammunition I would take in trade:
    .45 ACP
    .45 LC
    .22 LR (sub)
    9mm sub
    300 blk

    I am also open to other items. What do you have?

    Curious how one navigates to a target as shown in the video above. Do you and the kids add a gopro or something to the system?

    You could do that. In the demonstration video the students were looking into the water and navigating from the surface.
