I think a kit would be appropriate. Your target audience on this is easily 3rd-5th graders in gifted programs with in interests in technology and flying. This would make a great SCIENCE FAIR project and S.E.C.M.E. Competition! (Id probably suggest a competition of how much weight can be lifted, measuring stability and lift capabilities and technologies. It would have to be done in a small specially built area/stage that only the drone would be allowed inside while operating.) I personally would have preferred that to bridges and Rockets, but thats just my two cents! =) Personally I enjoyed Parallax's intro to micro controllers kit, something like that would be interesting for DIY or EDU learners. ***Or you could always hire me and I can work with the team to help design and implement a whole series around UAV-Drones("SMART Robots" or "SRs") including bases & landing/flight zones for SRs, Programming Flight Plans & logging them into a "DrONE server" (not yet invented "Virtual FAA ""UAV"" server), Creating advanced drop zones and "delivery" zones.(front door delivery/alternate mailbox delivery locations; in association with companies like amazon.com and other interested parties), Advanced Design in structures and lift (engineering and Physics based) Advanced Design for "consumer flight plans" (efficiency and destination delivery technology), Design in Power Efficiency, Safe flight practices (preparing for an FAA UAV License for flight; not yet invented), Advanced uses for flight based drones( photography, video, etc.),,,Thats a basic plan for UAV DRONES(flight only). Another basic plan would include Grounded(Land only) and Semi grounded(land+water) platforms as-well as a special platform for "All purpose based Drone systems" (flight+water+ground)* Tell me what you think!
