Build a remote-controlled Snap Rover that has working lights and sound effects.
From the manufacturer
With the Elenco Electronics Snap Circuits RC Rover kit, your child can build a working, remote-controlled rover. Featuring specially designed snap-together electrical components, this innovative kit offers a fun, hands-on education in electronics, allowing kids to create rovers and other fun devices by snapping together working circuitry. Recommended for kids ages 8 and over, the RC Rover kit includes over 30 pieces and instructions for 23 fun projects.
Create a Rover with Working Electronic Circuits
The Snap Circuits RC Rover kit comes with over 30 pieces to create a remote-controlled rover and other devices. It features a plastic rover body unit that includes large, treaded plastic wheels and a handheld remote control unit with antennae, both of which are used to create several different versions of a remote-controlled rover.
The kit includes snap wires, slide switches, electrodes, and other pieces that snap together easily on the included plastic grid-no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. Children can follow illustrated directions to create working circuit boards that power the rover and other projects.
Simple, Fun Projects Let Kids Learn while they Play
With its easy-to-follow instructions, Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education in how electrical circuits work to run their rover and the everyday devices that they're familiar with. They'll also gain valuable lessons in building and in following instructions.
The project manual starts out with instructions for creating a rover with a working LED headlight, and features several other rover configurations. Kids can also put together a rotating light, a generator, a saltwater detector and other devices. While they're completing these projects, children will learn about electric switches, radio reception, gear movement, Morse code and more.
The RC Rover kit can be upgraded to the Deluxe Snap Rover (SCROV-50) with the purchase of a UC-90 upgrade kit. Kids will enjoy additional parts, manuals and projects that'll take their Snap Rover to the next level.
This Snap Circuits kit requires six AA batteries and one 9-volt battery (not included).
- Age: 8 years and up
- Requirements: 6 AA batteries; 1 9-volt battery (not included)

WARNING: Many people (myself included) have experienced a dangerous burning out of the Motor Control unit (which included melting of the plastic). Lesson learned: Don't leave the power on when the rover is not in use!!
Fortunately, the company (Elenco) has amazing customer service. If a part is defective/broken, they will send you a replacement for free; they have been very good about that over the years.
Snap Circuits sets are great for learning electronics. I am a college physics professor, and I actually use them in my first-year physics class for teaching electronics.
The rover itself is actually pretty cool. Doesn't drive too fast. A bit loud. Easy to drive. In my opinion, a nice balance of science project and recreational vehicle.
Can't say enough about my positive experience with this product and the company. Well done!
The concept is fairly similar: you get a breadboard that's mounted onto a chassis. The chassis contains the batteries, wheels, motors, but none of the electronics that you then wire together to put together a remote control vehicle. The remote is a simple flimsy remote that's fixed function, by contrast.
The problem with the rover, however, is that it's of very limited variation. The wireless module and the control modules are two very big blocks that are connected by a bunch of resistors. In fact, as long as you want to receive signals from the controller and move the rover, you don't have any choice but to wire up these two big blocks a certain way. The problem then is that you don't have much space left on the breadboard for much else. Thus, the kit comes with 3 rover variations, and all the other projects basically treats the rover as a fixed unit supplying the power. Worse, the manual states that your other Snapcircuit kits (save a few exceptions) cannot be used on this circuit board because the voltage and power draws are different.
If I were the designer of the system, I would have fused the wireless and control modules together into one block, eliminating the need to take up so much space on the board. Furthermore, I'd also include a voltage stepper so that the rover would be compatible with other Snapcircuit kits.
As it is, the Rover sounds great, but is so limited that Bowen basically never played with it again after one night. I returned the toy to Amazon and he didn't even notice!
Customer service was excellent. I received a defective part and contacted CS via their website. The replacement part arrived in less than a week... no charge.
