(modified RC toy boat - MRC03)
suddently, i stumbled upon these old pictures and videos in my external hard drive. this work was done in december 2007. my younger brother had an RC planes with broken wings and fuselage in his room and i think i can put a use to it. after discussing with my cousins, we decided to assemble in on a floating mechanism since the RC module and fans are working fine.
MRC01 - Flat Polystyrene Board (3/12/2007)
(modified RC toy boat - MRC01)
we successfully came out with 3 prototypes namely MRC01, MRC02 and MRC03 which differed in their type of floating mechanisms and roll stabilizers. MRC01 did not have any type of roll stabilizers making it very difficult to make turns. in order to change the direction, only one of the two propellers will be activated causing significant body roll.
MRC02 - Toy Boat with 500ml Bottles Stabilizers (4/12/2007)

MRC02 and MRC03 were equipped with battery-powered toy boat having its own powerhouse. this greatly saves the battery stored within the RC modules that would be totally dedicated for boat maneuver. however, both propellers could also be activated as acceleration booster. since toy boat add-on heighten the center of gravity of the boat structure, 500ml bottles was used as roll stabilizers. this had also contributed to higher propeller level from the water surface as compared to previous prototype thus ensure a peace of minds when doing tight cornering!!
